Inferno is a robotic project inspired by the representation of the different levels of hell as they are described in Dante's Inferno or Haw Par Villa's Ten Courts of Hell and other religious representations. What makes this participative performance unique is that spectators wear exoskeletons on their body: a choreography follows (unexpected and involuntary!) programmed and controlled by a computer, making the audience an active part of the performance.

 

Louis-Philippe Demers and Bill Vorn have been working together on numerous robotic art projects since 1992. Inferno is their latest collaboration.

 

Performances schedule:

June 3 - 8 p.m. & 11 p.m.

June 4 - 11 p.m.
