The phrase “You Can’t Automate Me” encapsulates the crux of the relationship between the human and the machine in the singularly mechanised environment of a seaport. Through the introduction of elements of dance Katarina Jazbec positions front and centre the human body and the collective spirit of a daily life, marked with hard work, routine, and the precariousness of life itself.
