Prague – (Dance) Hackathon… We Won!

Julia Gleich, Gleich Dances, prague, Hackathon, danceI participated in the Hackathon November 20-21, 2015 in the wonderful city of Prague with CIANT and Europeana. It was a chance to brush off my tech/digital/math skills and work with some terrific new artists and programmers and dancer/choreographers. This was a stimulating weekend and I am proud that my partner, Ivor Diosi, and I were one of the winning teams. (My other team also won – Aidan Boyle, Martin Zrcek and Mirka Papajíková!)

For more detail on my collaboration visit Ivor’s tumblr page. For more on this project watch the CIANT Prague video of the weekend.

Movement and brain mapping: an interview with Julia K Gleich

Gleich Dances, Julia K Gleich, Brodmann AreasIn this interview with Philip Sandstrom, director and choreographer Julia K. Gleich explores the interaction of brain areas and movement. This is a study as much as it is a dance; it explores the what ifs of how the different areas of the brain affect movement and how we perceive movement as an audience. By challenging memory and forcing interaction and using dance as a tool to illuminate the working of the brain, Gleich stretches the boundaries of neurological studies.
