In our next project Bad Actor, we want to develop a robot or a ‘data driven’ actor. We want to expand the amount of emotions this ‘motorised emoji’ can express and give this ‘actor’ (robot) different characters to play, different emotional reactions to different data inputs. We want to then use this ‘robot- actor’ to be part of the process of making and performing stories about what makes a space safe both online and in real life. This is the very start of a new project, which we hope will eventually create a performance written by the pupils and performed either by themselves or by professional actors with those robots.
Watch this space!
