Science Fiction Puppet Theatre

Press-Release from the Coffeebots:

We are working on a theatre play to be performed live. It will be a marionette puppet extravaganza full of robots, coffee, punkrock space shanties, and algorithmic capitalism. Our play will use the language of the Internet: Easy English with heavy accents and lots of technobabble. The working title is „Never mind the gig work… here’s the Coffeebots!“

Premiere is scheduled later this year at the Remote Chaos Experience (rC3) after winter solistice and before New Year. On bord of c-base. More live shows will follow. See you soon and stay awake!

Coffeebots at Roboexotica

Our first guest-performance in Austria!

Roboexotica is a great festival for cocktailrobotics happening since 1999. It tookplace for the first time in Linz this year organized by the artist collective dh5. Well, we thought that would be the perfect place for the Coffeebots to play, followed the call for robots and got invited. So we paused the work on the upcoming theatre play (Yes, it will be a Sci-Fi story) and put together a program packed with songs about longdrinks, booze and cocktails and started rehearsing.

Beginning of September johl and e-punc got the Bots ready for the journey and boarded the train. Arriving in Linz we got a warm welcome by the great people at culture space „Damen & Herrenstraße 5“. So here’s a shoutout to the cocktail-robots and their makers:

The Coffebots play: Fairytale of New York

It’s the end of the pandemic year 2020 so the Coffeebots chose a wonderful christmas-song by one of the greatest bands ever to sing-a-long:
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues
Of course the filming took place considering the social distancing rules and it kind of matches the beautiful lyrics.
Thanks a lot to Miriam who helped puppeteering and filming.

Whish you all nice and relaxed holidays and a geat 2021!

Energiewende

Wird ja langsam Zeit für eine Energiewende, insofern setzt sich hier Dottore Spiralo für den Wechsel von Gas zu Solarzellen ein, um seinen Espresso zu machen…
