RO-MAN. IEEE International Symposium on robot and Human Interactive Communication

Proximity: Emergent interaction design for co-constructed improvisational performance.


We present Proximity, a robotic improvisational dance partner that uses principles of interactive dance and emergent behavior to collaborate with a human dancer in live, improvised dance performance. We describe the design theories that informed the project and how they were applied. Future development of the prototype is discussed.
