A Tempo Saturday (4/13) talks with choreographer Sydney Skybetter about how dancers can help inform the development of devices and robotic technologies that interact with people.

Choreographer Sydney Skybetter, Associate Professor of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies at Brown University, has been exploring the ways dancers and choreographers might contribute to the development and improvement of robotics and devices that interact with people. He founded the Conference for Choreographic Interfaces to bring together experts in various relevant fields to collaborate in finding solutions to some of these challenges, and A Tempo host Rachel Katz interviews him this week about some of these issues and developments in the field of choreorobotics. Listen at 7 pm.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
