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 in 2019!
