The cooperation between choreographer Mariam Aleksidze and author of the concept Prof. David Maziashvili was inspired by Ada Lovelace, daughter of the great poet Lord Byron. Lovelace’s mother, fearing that the daughter would inherit her father’s volatile “poetic” temperament, raised her under a strict regimen of studying science, logic, and mathematics – an unusual education for a woman. Perhaps these are what led Lovelace to the belief that anything that can be converted into numbers – such as music, the alphabet, or images – can then be manipulated by computer algorithms. Ada Lovelace is often referred to as “the first programmer” and “the prophet of the computer age”. Her love of both poetry and math primed her to see beauty in a computing machine that inspired David Maziashvili and Mariam Aleksidze for a new Solo – “Ada’s Room”.
