Together//Apart – A Human and Robot Dance Performance
Conceived by Kate Sicchio
Together//Apart is a choreographic performance for humans and a robot. It creates dynamic interactions between humans and machines, questioning how we co-exist in space, using proxemics as a poetic device. Together//Apart questions what happens when we share intimate space with machines.
Through live coding, real-time projections and a bespoke sensing system, the choreographer is able to send instructions for spatial patterns to both dancers and robots in real time. The performers (both human and robot) respond to each other, shifting from leader to follower, changing formation to formation, attracting and repelling from each other in the space.
COVID-19 policy: In guidance with the city and state COVID-19 policies, we will no longer be requiring masks, but strongly recommend them.
