The contested relationship between human nature and artificial life, between biology and robotics, outlines the context of this dance performance that aims to explore the potential of automation technology applied to the musical and choreographic score. A cellist, a dancer and a cobot UR10 (a new generation of collaborative robots), inhabit the scene.

The audience is asked to follow the evolution of the relationships where musical composition is the sharing point. The sound begins with an interaction that the Kinect camera, placed on the cobot’s top amplifies, when a video projector show the images on the wall throughout visions and projections of the actions taking place on the scene. The aim is to create a contact point, an intergender dialogue. The eyes of spectators are talking on their own presenting movement and sound, able to detect and extend communication and cultural barriers.
