For the last two years we have been delivering a diverse programme of events to accompany our current production, Project XO.
This has included working with Sense Charity, delivering movement and robotics workshops to adults with complex communication needs (deaf blind) exploring new ways they could experience movement and choreography without ‘seeing’ or ‘hearing’. The participants work with NMC to improve their physical strength and engage with dance and technology by wearing our robotic suits, designed to guide the wearer through precisely choreographed sequence of movements.
We have also worked the Barbican’s Young Creatives, who as an age group (mostly under 25’s) will be most affected by the progression and ethics of future AI and robotic development.
In 2019 we presented Project XO as work in progress during Tate Britain Lates. NMC were part of a one-night public show of performances, interactive installations, and participatory workshops to celebrate the Bauhaus centenary and its continuing influence.
