Event Details

This talk will investigate the potential of the performing arts to inspire the design of human-robot interactions through movement. Specifically, it will delve into what else can movement offer beyond the expression of a particular intention, emotion, or social code. Ideas brought up in second-order cybernetics and explored through the performing arts will give shape to what this alternative could be, pointing at a more embodied and relational HRI.

Irene Alcubilla Troughton is a last-year PhD Candidate at Utrecht University (UU) in the project ‘Acting like a Robot’ where she investigates how movement theory and practice in the performing arts can serve the design of human-robot interaction. She holds a cum-laude master’s degree in ‘Media, Art and Performance’ (UU), a master’s degree in ‘Theory and Critique of Culture’ (Carlos III University of Madrid) and has a background in literature and language studies.
