A historic church in Brooklyn is now a stage for robots.

Amorphic Robot Works, the brainchild of artist Chico MacMutrie, has been hosting robot concerts for the past two years inside the former Red Hook Church.

The performances feature dozens of robots, moving and “singing” on demand.

“All the machines move and all the machines are computer controlled,” MacMutrie explained. “They perform a range of behaviors we taught them over the years that are specific for the robotic church.”

MacMutrie has trained robots to tumble, climb and move up-and-down.

“The performance is very much about an audience being immersed into a complete experience,” MacMutrie said.

The robots perform all around the world. More information on schedules and performances is available at
