Human Design

58 minutes, 7 dancers, 4 musicians, 1 A.I. robot
von Grégory Darcy
Guest performance as part of the intercultural festival MADE IN STUTTGART 2023

In cooperation with Forum der Kulturen Stuttgart e.V.
Why are we created? Why do we create machines? What is the connection between Machine with artificial intelligence, Human Being and Nature?
With these fundamental questions deals the dance project Human Design, which combines human and artificial bodies in dance. This choreography of hydraulics versus blood circulation, electronics versus nervous system and software versus brain waves - aim at completely redefining the term inclusion. People and A.I. machines with different abilities dance in a solo, duo, trio, or all together.

Choreographer Motivation

Choreographer in an inclusive and professional dance company who studied aerospace engineering, Darcy has always been interested in the boundary points between Human Being and Technology. Currently he dedicates his life to art, but before he had professional experiences with physics, mathematics and with hydraulic and pneumatic aerospace systems. The idea of a connection between dance and bionics, in the form of a performance, also came from this period. He finds it fascinating to look at how we are influenced by machines or how machines can influence us. And even more fascinating how a possible partnership between humans, robots and nature could develop, offering an exchange platform between scientists and artists, experiencing new perspectives on their own work.
