The most human by Robin Jonsson
Ludvig Daae is a Norwegian human dancer who grew up in Nesbyen and Maria is a humanoid robot-dancer who grew up at IDA at Linköping University. Led by choreographer Robin Jonsson and Robot developer Fredrik Löfgren, they are presented equally but according to their own unique capacities in a dancy piece that investigates human-ness, presence and authenticity.
The work reflects the radical transformation of society, especially in the service-industry, the heavy industry and healthcare, where robots have taken over people’s jobs, but where they also to a great extent collaborate with humans. In The most human, a robot replaces a human dancer and collaborates with another. The robot is humanoid, intelligent and autonomous and influences the work process and the finished result.
The work builds on Robin’s earlier project Simulations and others where virtual bodies from video games were simulated on stage by human dancers, aiming to shed light on the human.
