Robin Jonsson has been creating and touring works since finishing his studies at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels in 2008.
Several of the works he created during his studies continued to tour for several years such as "Super Conflict" and "I Believe I Can see the future". These works together with Simulations was based on an extremely accurate copying and then simulation of virtual characters from video games, animation and similar media.
Later, he worked in a similar way with Zombies and pure acting in The Hollows 1 and 2the latter premiered here at Dansens Hus, and the former at MDT.
A common denominator in all of Robin's works is the deconstruction of how human bodies are represented artificially, in the form of animation, puppets or robots. - My interest focuses on the construction and representation of these virtual bodies, their behaviours, their movement qualities, physics and physiology. For example, how movements and the relationship to gravity are simulated or how they have been created to appear natural in their movement schemes.
For some years now, Robin has been focusing her work on human-shaped robots and what they can bring to the performing arts field in the performances "The most human" and now the current "Other than human" which will premiere at Dansens Hus in April 2020.
