Zebra 2.0 was commissioned for the inaugural Science in Theatre Festival by Transforma Theatre in New York in 2021. Development of Zebra 2.0 was supported by a North American Cultural Laboratory Deep Space Residency.

A mind-bending, heart-rending – and funny – transmedial performance experience, Zebra 2.0 engages questions of artificial intelligence, humanity, belonging, consciousness, and reality, at the heart of which beats the story of the uncanny friendship between Zina, an undocumented immigrant woman, and AI, who appears on a large computer monitor. Over the course of 50 nights, Al and Zina swirl us through their tale of language, love, and learning. Will these two misfits find fulfillment in this crazy, mixed-up world before the powers that be can interfere?
