HABITdata - 2016

 

HabitData is focused on the potential of robotic technology applied to choreography. A robotic arm is on stage and tries to interlace a dialogue with the dancers. This choreographic research investigates on the human body responses when it is set facing robotic movement, which opens up an enquiry on the relationship between technology and the human being. The performance shows these two worlds continuously depending on each other, whilst in fact they engage themselves in a conscious and sensitive process of mutual awareness in the attempt to restore a balance.
