Before then .... 

well, we started in 1973 (first interactive performance with technology), in Ames, Iowa.  w.t.f.

The name "Palindrome" started at NYU, ca. 1982.

European touring 1983-1986.

Moved to Germany in 1988 -- first Cologne, then later Nürnberg.  The city supported us for many years and we did a lot of touring. 

First performance work with computers 1995.

Then the city stopped supporting us, thank you very much. 

So we moved to the countryside near Stuttgart in 2006 : )  

Then, in 2010, Weimar, which is great.
