Kennesaw State University Alumni Dance With Robots

December 10, 2021

Choreographer Ivan Pulinkala’s latest work, “FOREST,” features some unexpected performers: improvising robots. As a collaboration between Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State University (where Pulinkala is the founding chair and professor of dance), the work pairs robot musician/dancers with human partners (who happen to be KSU alums). This video shows how the work came together and shares why the collaborators hope it not only inspires new avenues for creativity, but establishes better trust of robotic platforms.
