Inferno: Robotic Exoskeleton Performance

Gray Area is proud to present Inferno, an exhilarating industrial performance featuring machine-powered exoskeletons and live music by artists Louis-Philippe Demers and Bill Vorn at Gray Area Festival. Expanding on Gray Area’s current focus on immersive design, the work invites the public to become an active part of our Gray Area Festival Performance.

Participating audience members, clad in machine-powered wearable exoskeletons, will step on stage to perform for a show unlike any other. Each robot is designed to perform dynamic movements choreographed and activated by the artists, mobilizing the performers to dance in time to the dark, industrial techno soundtrack for the audience.

Shifting the command from artist to computer and role of audience to performer, Inferno questions the nature of control and agency in the landscape of technology and performance today. At the frontier of art and technology, this interactive performance poses a remarkably unique experience questioning our world in its transformation.

Inferno at the Grand Theater

From July 25 through 28, Inferno will be presented at Gray Area's Grand Theater in San Francisco for 10 shows only.
