“The Dynamic Still” improvisation dance with a robot. International Improfestival 2017 – Aalborg Teater, Denmark – Guest performer: Sandro Masai
Can robots improvise? Performance artists increasingly use computers and other smart devices to generate art works, but at what point does technology stop being a tool and become a performer? This improvisational performance investigates creative performance between living and non-living actors— a human being and an intelligent mobile robot. None of the performance is pre-scripted or tele-operated; audiences watch the actors communicate and improvise to develop an original performance. The project is developed by RELATE – Research Laboratory for Art and Technology at AAU.
THE DYNAMIC STILL TEAM:
Guest performers: Hartvig Hansen, Miguel Castro and Sandro Masai
