ElevenPlay, a Tokyo-based movement and media collective, will perform at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center at 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 1.
Using technologies such as drones, robot arms, and lasers, ElevenPlay is expanding the scope of what a dance ensemble can communicate in the 21st century.
The group’s lead choreographer, Mikiko, is well-known in Japanese dance circles, having choreographed for the Japanese metal group Babymetal, the girl group Sakura Gakuin and the pop group Perfume.
For American audiences, ElevenPlay was the stand-out act in the second audition episode of America’s Got Talent in 2016.
ElevenPlay has also notably danced during the opening act of Lady Gaga’s 2014 world tour ArtRave: The Artpop Ball, specifically dancing with Hatsune Miku.
