Robert Wechsler & Guests
Im Rahmen von "Unfinished Fridays"
1000 Things is a collection of everyday human artifacts:
1000 touches ....
These are among the simplest, most ordinary and inevitable aspects of life. The piece is a study in human behavior, not for our intentions or desires, but rather for the acts themselves. Eight highly-trained dancers re-create the patterns we know from everyday life, in tessellations through time and space. It is a choreography that is both familiar, and utterly bizarre.
Choreography: Robert Wechsler
With: Vanessa Cokaric, Aika Tadeshi, Tayler Drury, Camille Jackson, Hannah Levine,
Po-Nien Wang, Sarah Stanley, Taka Tadeshi, Tiziano Portas.
Palindrome Dance Company was founded in New York City in the 1980's. They moved to Germany in the 90's, first Nürnberg, then Weimar and finally Berlin. Founder and artistic director Robert Wechsler applies his fascination for science and technology to the art of dance. Palindrome is a pioneer in the use of computers and interactive technology with dance, creating dance pieces and operas which have earned critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, winning first prize at the Berlin Transmediale (Best Interactive Art), first prize at CynetArt Dresden and, most recently, a special recognition award from the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition at Georgia Tech University. Since 2012, they have focused on inclusive musical expression devices for persons of other abilities, under the banner MotionComposer. Meanwhile, a new ensemble formed in Berlin -- working towards the full-evening 1000Things.
