ElevenPlay takes the stage at the Hammer Theatre as part of the new ArtTech series. This Japanese dance troupe is known for their use of advanced technologies like drones, robot arms, and lasers in their performances. They have wowed America’s Got Talent audiences in 2016 and Lady Gaga fans during her 2014 artRAVE: the ARTPOP ball tour alongside visual popstar Hatsune Miku.
The dance troupe was founded in 2009 by choreographer MIIKO who hoped to bring together dancers with a unique artistic sense and boundless creativity. ElevenPlay shows their artistry in still photos, choreography videos, and stage performances.
Throughout their eight-year career, they have been praised by many entertainment and editorial publications. In 2014, Vice described ElevenPlay as a troupe that “brings the term ‘rise of the machines’ to new literal heights,” and in 2015, WIRED likened their performance to a “concert straight out of the future.”
ElevenPlay promises Hammer Theatre audiences a night that combines artistic expression and technological innovation. Come to the Hammer Theatre for this novel experience!
Daito Manabe, a media artist, and Rhizomatiks, an interaction design company, who have collaborated with artists such as Bjork, OKGo, Squarepusher, and Nosaj Thing, have provided complete technical support to this ElevenPlay tour.
