The story revolves around Aislin, who is getting older and suffers the inevitable indignities of being human — and hates technology. Stacy, her caregiver is perfectly toned, doesn’t age, and is utterly in control — because she’s an AI entity. And there’s a new algorithm out there called AOS or Approximation of Soul. Does Stacy have it? José Rivera examines how we live, die, and form our sense of self in a world that’s increasingly saturated with technology. 

Your Name Means Dream had its world premiere at Contemporary American Theater Festival in West Virginia in 2023.
