Palindrome is a dance company
Founded in New York City in 1982, Palindrome moved to Germany
in 1991 and is now based in Berlin.
Its founder and artistic director Robert
Wechsler applies a fascination for science and technology to the art
of dance. As the computer age dawned in the 1990's, Palindrome became
a pioneer in the use of interactive technology -- creating dance pieces
and opera productions with high-tech sensors. This work earned critical
acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic; they won first prize at the Berlin
Transmediale, CynetArt Dresden and, most recently, a special recognition
award from the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition in Atlanta,
Georgia for it's MotionComposer,
a device for persons with other abilities. It makes music out of movement
-- whether an acrobatic pirouette, or the blink of an eye!
In December 2018, the company began rehearsals for a new
evening-length work, with the working title: 1000
Things. As work continues, stay tuned for showing s and performances
