Choreographer Wayne McGregor teaches Google’s AI how to create dance

Living Archive, Google’s AI tool for choreography, is being adopted by award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor, who has pioneered integrating technology into dance. Video

The tool generates original movement inspired by McGregor’s 25-year archive, creating a live dialogue between dancers and his body of work.

Beginning with a short phrase of dance, Living Archive’s machine learning can generate up to 400,000 new iterations of new phrases, in the choreographer’s unique style.
