Asia Pacific Dance Platform XI
HUANG YI & KUKA

A human-robot duet

 

INTRODUCTION

Huang Yi named by Dance Magazine as one of the “25 to Watch”

“These strong emotional currents flow through HUANG YI & KUKA, presented by 3-Legged Dog, making it more than just an amusing exercise in blending dance and technology.” New York Times

“Dancing face to face with a robot is like looking at my own face in a mirror... I think I have found the key to spin human emotions into robots.” Huang Yi

As a child, Huang Yi longed for a robot companion. As an adult, he created a robot to dance with.

Acclaimed Taiwanese choreographer and dancer Huang Yi and his robot companion KUKA bring razor sharp precision and stunning artistry to Hong Kong. HUANG YI & KUKA reveals humanity through a series of vignettes between live dancers and KUKA, a robot conceptualised and programmed by Huang. Harmoniously weaving together the art of dance and the science of mechanical engineering, HUANG YI & KUKA is a poetic work that flawlessly intertwines modern dance with the realm of robotics.
