After the Detox show, the Machine was not used for over 2 years. But late 2002 the Machine 5.0 was redesigned with new text, sound and back projections. The final result was a 25 min long performance.

The sound to the performance is composed and played back in surround sound, and six megaphones connected to sampler. The robots movements are controlled live through a special interface, enebling a thight chorecraphy with the music and the audience. During the perforrmance the Machines shifts identity from male to female.
