“Robot & Scarecrow” by Kibwe Tavares
Set amidst the euphoric madness of a summer music festival, Robot & Scarecrow is a uniquely modern fairytale about love. When a robot pop princess ﬂees her keeper she runs straight into the arms of a lonely scarecrow desperate for adventure. They spend an incredible night together, caught in a heady vortex of music and magic.
Perched on a hill overlooking a music festival, our lonely Scarecrow is being tortured by crows. As he takes in the distant festival, it pushes him to change his fate. Filled with renewed strength, Scarecrow manages to uproot himself and sets off to experience ﬁrst-hand what he has listened to every summer for years. What he ﬁnds at the festival, however, is far beyond what he expected.
Backstage, we meet a lonely Robot pop princess with a dying battery cell. Knowing this is her last night of existence before being powered down, she escapes into the audience after her performance, hoping to spend her last few hours living a real life.
Robot and Scarecrow, two lost and lonely souls in the middle of the beautiful chaos, stumble upon each other. They spend one glorious night together, exploring everything the festival has to offer, whilst quickly falling in love.
By the time the dawn comes around they have had the perfect twenty-four hour party experience. But what Scarecrow doesn’t realise is that his new love’s battery is dying and as the sun is coming up, her life is fading fast.
Maybe nothing this good can last forever… right?
