Dancing face to face with a robot is like looking at my own face in a mirror...I think I have found the key to spin human emotions into robots.
Acclaimed Taiwanese choreographer Huang Yi and his robot companion Kuka bring razor sharp precision and stunning artistry to the stage. Harmoniously weaving together the art of dance and the science of mechanical engineering, Huang Yi and Kuka is a poetic work that flawlessly intertwines modern dance and visual arts with the realm of robotics.
Huang Yi and Kuka investigates important questions about the role of artificial intelligence in our present and our future lives, exploring if it’s really possible to have meaningful interaction with machines. Huang Yi takes 10 hours to program one minute of robot movement.
Huang Yi & KUKA are joined on stage by dancers Hu Chien and Lin Jou-Wen.
Huang Yi and Kuka is part of the Great Ideas Performance Series and Arts Education program.
