Who the hell is Siri to tell you what to do? Francasixiə imagines a deeper relationship with the obscure technologies behind voice assistants, by giving the audience a chance to programme the commands. Are you done? is an online intermedial performance consisting of different tasks throughout the festival week, including a pre-show questionnaire and a performative live interview with a synthetic voice, to explore the idea of ethical digital companionship and solitude in the lockdown era.
