This thesis explores the use of robotics technology to allow plants to dance. It researches the relationships between plants and dance, which is established via a dialog through technology. Plant-centric dance principles using Laban Movement analysis are then discussed and implemented through robotics and programmed choreography. Multiple pieces I developed were used to inform this new space for multimedia artwork. From this research, several implementations were made in the form of public dance performances.
