This paper proposes a humanoid robot performance system for performing in public places, such as an event, exhibition, or street performance. The system of modular structures can be moved easily, and can be played by a module or a combination of modules. The system developed with open source-based software and hardware is easy to adapt and improve. The robot performance control program for controlling robots, displays, audios, videos, and performance instruments was developed using the open source language, Processing. The performance instruments were developed using the open source hardware, Arduino. The contents of the robot performance were composed of scene-specific image, background audio, computer graphics, and videos. For their control and synchronization, the performance control program communicates with the humanoid robots and the performance instruments. In addition, performance accessories required to represent the performance concepts are produced by 3D modeling and printing. In a public place, the robot performance is performed with the theme of celebrating a Halloween day.
