The world premiere of Scary Beauty is Japan's offering to this year's OzAsia Festival's Meeting Points program which is being held on Saturday, 30 September 2017 and Sunday, 1st October 2017.

In this new and unique opera experiment, Japanese composer and pianist Keiichiro Shibuya has composed an opera of 35 minutes duration featuring Skeleton (one of the world's most sophisticated androids). Skeleton will use its own neural network which mimics our human brains (giving it complete control over its limbs and facial expressions through electronic sensors) to perform 3 songs on stage and will be accompanied by the Australian Art Orchestra.

Also on offer is an opportunity to attend a free discussion with the creative team of Scary Beauty on Thursday, 28 September 2017 at 3.30pm at Open State Hub, Victoria Square (1 hour duration). Discussion will revolve around the development of this unique production and future implications and possibilities of artificial intelligence in the arts. Click here for more information.
