Crush On Humans

Welcome, Sensation-Seekers, to the origins of Alphabot, a robot boy with a human heart. Join our hero and a mashup of Toronto music scene notables as they attempt to save humanity from its tyrannical robot oppressors. In an eight-episode story that unfolds over the course of the festival, our hero battles the insidious seduction of the machine, tries to differentiate between human babies and pets, and explores the desolate wasteland of 2017.

Each episode can be enjoyed on its own, or catch all eight episodes by buying tickets to each performance date!
