Not youth but age is our future
This show discusses a future that is very much happening already – the ageing of societies in developed nations. The huge increase in the ratio of the old to the young is making our current economic and social systems unworkable. And yet there is little sign that we are adapting our societies as we surely must to manage this demographic shift. The rise of the robots arguably poses similar threats and yet could offer solutions too. But we are still left with great challenges, from the way we build our physical world to the nature of our economic and legal systems to our perception of what a life is and should be.



Simple no longer works
The sum total of human knowledge continues to increase, as does the complexity of the world we build for ourselves. And the increase is exponential, further enhanced by the global interconnectedness of everything. This show is not about the utopian or dystopian futures that might result, it is not about life beyond the singularity, it is about how this is affecting us now and how we deal with it now. If humans are not built to deal with such a complex and rapidly evolving world will the increasingly intelligent and flexible systems we build constitute the toolkit we need to adapt? How would this redefine the role of people and are societies ready to accept and adjust to this?
