We should know each other's... robots?

This special edition of 'We Should Know Each Other' invites you to spend a casual afternoon in one of Calgary's lesser-known theatres.

Join us behind-the-scenes to meet the cast and crew of i-ROBOT Theatre, plus members of Calgary's robotics community and a host of other cool peeps.

Robots need love, too. They want to be loved by you. See you at this roboticized edition of WSKEO!

hex laboratorium invites you to an electrotechno cabaret of sound, visual and poetic inventions. hex laboratorium will showcase artists experimenting (individually and collaboratively) in interactive new media, sound art, circuit bending, collaborative research, and robotic texts.
