Humankind vs. Technology
Humankind vs. Technology is a unique exploration of the pitfalls of dependence on technology, and a celebration of what it means to be human, created and portrayed through Indian music and dance.

was astonished to hear her daughter's first words, instead of 'Mama' or 'Papa', to be 'Alexa stop!'. This in turn triggered a journey of introspection, re-evaluation and examination of the ways that technology creeps into our lives and relationships without us being aware.
