As a child, he dreamed of having his own robot, as an adult he asks a robot for a dance. In this prize-winning performance, the Taiwanese choreographer and dancer Huang Yi combines the science of technological precision with the art of dance. His dancing partner is KUKA, an industrial robot that Huang Yi chose for its fluid design and human-like motions and programmed him accordingly. The poetic interaction of human being and machine that drives Huang Yi’s artistic work opens space for emotional and aesthetic reflections. The dancing couple is accompanied by the dancer Lin Jou-Wen and the actor and choreographer Hu Chien.
