Last summer CSAIL Director Daniela Rus teamed up with modern dance company Pilobolus to create a new piece that tells the tale of an unusual friendship forged between man and machine. The resulting work, “Seraph,” featured quad-rotors developed in Rus’ Distributed Robotics Lab at CSAIL performing with dancers from Pilobolus to a Schubert piano trio.
Seraph has been selected as a featured film in the upcoming Robot Film Festival, taking place next Saturday, July 14 in New York City.
