Six dancers. Five drones. Endless emotions.
In this ambitious new work, Australasian Dance Collective brings art and technology together in a world-first project. Lucie In the Sky will see drones choreographed using human movement patterns to emulate emotions and personalities.
Inviting the audience into a world where humanity and technology share vulnerabilities, hopes and fears, Lucie In the Sky explores the melding of drones and dancers, humanising the drones and bringing the ‘Pixar’ effect into real life.
Complex relationships are thrust into the spotlight, as we explore the balance of power and our deep-seated need for each other. Peers. Companions. Friends. Foes.
Get ready to suspend disbelief during this incredibly ambitious project with Australasian Dance Collective, as they create a new world on-stage in a step towards our future.
