A performance by 24 small drones and five dancers. The drones fly in perfect formation as if they were sentient creatures, never colliding while the dancers weave among them. Original software was developed to generate the drone movements. The work is impressive for its human-machine interaction, the beauty of its composition, and the high degree of safety maintained by its advanced control technology.
