Android Apparatus is a glowing piece of cyber armour custom-fit over a black leotard, fit out to costume an aerial hoop performer. As the dancer performs, the costume glows responsively, brightening and dimming, changing colour to compliment both the range and intensity of motion. The wearable rig becomes an instrument that brings out the best in the performer. Previous editions of Android Apparatus have been shown with stilt-walkers and dancers - the wearable is straightforward to custom colour and can be suited to most evening environments. For upcoming performances, we intend to work with lyra hoop dancing.
