Dancers with weird costumes? Check. Trippy sci-fi music? Check. Drones with pyramids on top… wait, what? The Eleven Play dance troupe in Japan has integrated quadrotors into its performances, starting with synchronized moves choreographed to the dancers. The flying ‘bots soon take over the show, though, chasing the humans off the stage. Then it’s all drones, flying in coordination to a Tron-like geometric light show. It’s all quite wonderful (see the video below), even if we don’t know exactly what it all means — something something dehumanization of modern technology?
