/ discrete figures
by Rhizomatiks Research & ELEVENPLAY // MUTEK_IMG
Interdisciplinary digital Renaissance man Daito Manabe, his Rhizomatiks Research group and ELEVENPLAY, led by choreographer MIKIKO present the world premiere of their latest creation discrete figures. Inspired by Alan Turing, their newest dance installation marries choreography for five dancers with machine learning technology and a stage designed for interactivity between performers, drones, virtual dancers and other objects. The closing event of MUTEK_IMG, a forum on current practices in digital creation, the performance interrogates the essence of human and machine and the future nature of physicality and cognition in a world where machine mathematics can express as physically as humans do.
