Amazon’s Alexa as actor? Texas group will combine art and artificial intelligence at AT&T Performing Arts Center 

Local arts group Therefore already incorporates elements of theater, performance art and music into their work. Now creative director Dean Terry is adding artificial intelligence to the mix. 

For their latest show, the group will have scripted live interactions with home assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa. Several of these devices have been turned into “actors” for “The Alexa Dialogues,”  debuting at AT&T Performing Arts Center on May 24. Currently in development, the project was announced with a new Instagram account, @alexadialogues

The posts are strange snippets from rehearsals, including a murder mystery scene that captures the machines talking to each other. Abstract, surreal and poetic, this thoughtful investigation of technology imagines possible future scenarios that may make you think twice about trusting Echo devices in your home.
