Liu Xiaoyi, Artistic Director of Emergency Stairs, continues his exploration of new theatre forms through a series he calls, "No More Theatre". This experiment, Writing with AI, is one of the experiments in this series that examines how humans co-write theatrical scripts with artificial intelligence and conduct comparative studies on the scripts written by humans and AI. Through this experiment, we attempt to develop a new methodology, and to excavate a new way of creation with the concept of crossing over of art and technology. More importantly, we hope to rethink and review the relationship and the future of art and technology.
As part of this experiment and research, we will invite the audience to participate in a showcase. Can you determine which script was written by who? Stay tuned for the online showcase happening live on the 11th and 12th February 2022.

About No More Theatre
The No More Theatre series is an exploration of new theatre forms. With the recognition of our reality shifting towards a more technology-reliant culture in contemporary times, No More Theatre experimental series challenges existing frameworks of art-making. The Research and Development branch of No More Theatre began in 2018 shortly after Liu Xiaoyi received the Young Artist Award Grant from the National Arts Council. Over the period of March 2019-2021, he gathered a team of established artists to develop a new methodology and medium for works in the spectrum of art and technology. In 2021 & 2022, with the support of the NAC's SEP Grant, Writing With AI is a continuation of the experiments in the No More Theatre series to further develop a process of art-making with playwrights and the AI model.
"不再剧场"系列是对未来剧场形式的探索。我们越来越意识到,现实生活越来越依赖技术的发展。"不再剧场"正是在这样的大环境下，借由科技发起对现有艺术创作框架的挑战。刘晓义于2016年荣获国家艺术理事会颁发的"青年艺术奖"之后，便在2018年利用该奖项的奖金开始了"不再剧场"的研究与发展。2019年至2021年间,晓义召集了一批跨界艺术家,共同研发跨科技与艺术的新创作模式。到了2021年底,在国家艺术理事会"自雇人士补贴"(SEP Grant) 的支持下，晓义又发起了《与人工智能写作》，作为"不再剧场"实验系列的延续，希望能发展出编剧与AI模型共同合作的新创作模式。
