The piece was inspired by the hypothesis of Uncanny Valley, the view of movements within research by classical and contemporary dance. The “Uncanny valley” effect is a characteristic of emotional response that occurs when we humans encounter an almost but not quite human entity. Are we humans seeking to become more humanoids, and Robots are adorning more and more to be like humans?
