For this talk we are joined by Adrienne Hart the Artistic Director of Neon Dance & collaborator Hemma Philamore from University of Bristol's Robotics Lab. They will be discussing their latest work Prehension Blooms.
This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel.
Neon Dance is an internationally renowned organisation that creates dance works that explore technology and design with the body as the central tenet. It’s new work Prehension Blooms explores social connectivity and collaboration using bio-inspired robotics. The work is designed to unravel the origins of loneliness and set to premiere at Bristol Beacon (UK) and Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale (JP).
In Prehension Blooms the public will be free to roam in the performance space, they will encounter 5 dancers, an insect-like robot community and each other in playful and unexpected ways. By moving, sitting, lying down and congregating in the space, audiences can influence all aspects of the performance including light and sound design.
Adrienne Hart (Artistic Director, Neon Dance) will be joined by collaborator Hemma Philamore (University of Bristol’s Robotics Lab) during this Lunchtime Talk to discuss the creation of Prehension Blooms and share early prototype designs.
Join us on Fri 16th April, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
