Drones Create A Tech Savvy Modern Dance Performance
Dance troupe Eleven Play choreographed and performed a piece with both humans and unmanned aerial vehicles together.
Most people probably identify unmanned aerial vehicles or drones as those things that fly around and deliver products — be it a package for an individual, fertilizers for a whole field of crops — or gather information or images like environmental conditions and aerial photos. They have also been known to function quite well as tools for abstract painting. And now, drones are showing everyone that they can hold their own as well in the world of dance and performance arts.
Eleven Play, a Japanese dance company led by director and choreographer MIKIKO, recently performed a piece with both dancers and drones together. The dance group performed their mesmerizing piece at the Spiral Hall in Tokyo.
