Dancing With Drones: Eleven Play x Rhizomatiks Team Up

“elevenplay dance performance with drones at Spiral Hall”

This work, which may or may not have a name, was developed by Eleven Play and Daito Manabe of Rhizomatiks.

Some interesting tidbits from the extended YouTube description:

“In this new work, objects are arranged three-dimensionally in real space through a tracking technology and drone control system, and the work, in which dancers give performances, has been presented so as to find the possibility of a new bodily expression.”

“There are two kinds of drone movements: a motion produced by tracking a dancer’s movements and an artificial motion operated on the software. At first, dancers had to be trained to interact with the drones because they could not predict how they would move, but eventually they were able to dance with the drones as closely as 10cm away from them.”
