ROBOT: Blanca Di Li Dance Company

Daft Punk and Beyoncé's choreographer presents a multimedia show

Take a trip into a fantastical universe where humans and robots playfully mingle and merge, all dancing to the percussive beat of a ten-piece mechanical orchestra. Full of invention, wit and mischievous humour, this multimedia spectacle sees eight agile dancers share the stage with seven personality-infused robot humanoids who talk, see and feel. As they mimic each other’s characteristics, they become almost interchangeable, their movements driven by the sound of imaginatively designed self-playing instruments. Fascinated by man’s ever-evolving dependence on technology, Spanish-born Blanca Li has devised a visually startling show that embraces artificial life, automation and projection mapping while retaining her trademark exuberance. Based in France and best known for her choreographic work with Daft Punk, Beyoncé and Pedro Almodóvar, this show is a real treat. Age guidance: 7+. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
