Theatre play on responsible AI

A theatre play on responsible artificial intelligence is being developed by Théâtre Duceppe and award-winning playwright Dominique Leclerc.

The play, produced in collaboration with Université de Montréal, will be inspired by the principles of the Montréal Declaration. Written and directed by Dominique Leclerc and Patrice Charbonneau-Brunelle, from Posthumains, it will focus on the social issues surrounding artificial intelligence and new digital technologies. By dramatizing current knowledge and debates around AI, the play aims to raise awareness among a wider audience and involve them more fully in the debate on AI governance.

Scientific supervision of the project is led by Catherine Régis, a professor in the Faculty of Law at UdeM, with the support of Jean-Marc Larrue, a theatre specialist and professor in the Department of French Literature at UdeM. Students from various disciplines will also be taking part in the project, and co-creation activities with the public and university experts are planned.

The first performances are scheduled for the 2024-2025 season of Théâtre Duceppe.
