UP: The Umbrella Project

UP: The Umbrella Project, created by Pilobolus in collaboration with the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory, premiered at PopTech in the Camden Harbor Amphitheater in Camden, Maine. Functioning as individuals in a group – or pixels on a screen – participants wielding umbrellas fabricated with multi-colored LED lights, created a performance piece together that was projected in real time on a large screen.

Starring the PopTech conference attendees and the Camden community, this Pilobolus piece, like all of the modern performance company’s work over the last 42 years, was borne out of its proven method of collective creativity.
