Elevenplay is a Japanese dance troupe noted for their incorporation of advanced technologies into their works.[1] It is headed by director and principal choreographer Mikiko.[2]


The collaborated with the Rhizomatics groups to produce a piece called Shadow, which also uses three drones as well as one spot light and one dancer.[3] Elevenplay teamed up with the Rhizomatiks again to produce the show Pulse, for the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico. This piece relies on projection-mapping both on the background and on the dancers.[2]

They have also collaborated individually with Rhizomatics director Daito Manabe to create a technology-enhanced show called Drone-Augmented Amazingness, which uses three drones as well as a projection-mapped backdrop. At first, the dancers direct the drones, but by the end of the piece, the drones replace the dancers.[1][4]
