Grantee: Huang Yi
ACC alumnus and dancer/choreographer Huang Yi is the creator of an unprecedented show in which he takes the stage to dance with KUKA, a machine programmed in his image and likeness and that imitates human emotions.It’s a poetic piece of amazing precision that makes possible the harmonious coexistence of modern dance, visual arts and mechanical engineering. In words of the choreographer, “KUKA is a process that embellishes the pain and sadness that I experienced in my childhood. It’s the expression of loneliness, lack of confidence and self-realization.”
