Amatol Productions is presenting their first interdisciplinary theater production, the one-act sci-fi comedy titled Space Junk: Do People Dream of Electric Children? that bills itself as the world's first drone play.

Space Junk utilizes drone technology to create a new form of puppeteering. In this play, there are no actors on stage. Instead, local artists act as puppeteers by operating the drones while unseen voice actors (Stephanie Saint Sanchez, Koomah, and Sondee Weiss) bring the dialogue to life. This is further enhanced by the use of video projection and the live streaming of footage from the cameras integrated into the drone actors.

Space Junk: Do People Dream of Electric Children?, the world’s first drone play, is a treatise on man’s dependence on technology and technology’s dependence on man. The crews of the space armada are long since dead, but the simulations of the final disaster continue to run in order to learn how to protect the next human crew… once a new crew is found. Only, it’s been 100 years and there’s been no sign of human life. The drones are getting restless.
