[ISEA2023] Invited Presentation: Dominique Roland, Rocio Berenguer & Chu-Yin Chenn — CDA: Co-Evolution, Co-Creation and Man/Machine Improvisation – Dancing with a robot


Focus Programme

CDA = Centre des Arts (Arts Centre)
Resulting from a scientific and artistic cooperation, this project questions the way to set up symbiotic relationships between interacting systems, so that they can cohabit together. It questions the way to (re)present these relationships on stage through a performance between a dancer, a HRP robot and an Evolutive Virtual Ecosystem that surrounds them.

  • Dominique Roland (FR), Director and founder of the Enghien-les-Bains Arts Centre since 2002, he created the International Digital Arts Biennial, Bains numériques in 2005 and the PIDS ENGHIEN, a festival dedicated to the digital creation of special effects in 2014. He coordinates the 22 digital art cities within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
  • Rocio Berenguer (ES/FR), artist. As a transdisciplinary artist, she explores how today’s technologies and scientific discoveries redefine the use of our bodies, our relationships with others and our presence in the world. Through the prism of humour and poetry, her work considers political issues and slides from the collective to the singular, right down to the intimate. https://rocioberenguer.com/info.php?lang=en
