The 2012 PopTech conference begins tomorrow, Thursday, in Camden. PopTech brings together a global community of innovators from many fields to share insights and work together to create lasting change.

Pilobolus is a venerable modern performance company that convenes groups of diverse artists to create athletic, collaborative works on stage and screen using the human body as a medium for expression.

During the PopTech conference on Friday night, Oct 19, from 6:00-7:00p.m., Pilobolus will enlist several hundred volunteers to participate in a large-scale, live performance using umbrellas fabricated with multi-colored LED lights created by the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory. The performance will be simultaneously projected onto a large screen.

Volunteers are welcome on the spot. Whether you choose to participate or simply observe, remember to dress warm and join us at the Bok Amphitheater in Camden for a great show brought to you by Pilobolus, the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory and your friends in the PopTech community.
