Palindrome is a dance company
Founded in New York City in 1982, Palindrome moved to Germany
in 1991, first Nürnberg, and then Weimar, where they remain busy
with choreographic matters.
Its founder and artistic director Robert
Wechsler applies his 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 operas which earned critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic.
Palindrome won first prize at the Berlin Transmediale, first prize at
CynetArt Dresden and, most recently, a special recognition award from
the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition at Georgia Tech University
for its MotionComposer , which
is an interactive device for person with other abilities. It makes music
out of movement -- be it an acrobatic pirouette, or the blink of an eye!
