“A fantasia on the American West is a risky way to celebrate your silver anniversary. Impressionistic ballets can be incoherent nightmares.

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!) Lots of intriguing ideas about 3-d animation, use of EEG and motion capture, playing with sequencing or captured material as part of a near-AI approach to interactivity. For more detail on my collaboration visit Ivor’s tumblr page. For more on this project watch the CIANT Prague video of the weekend.

We’ve painted a picture of individual artists scrapping together to instill bygone industrial regions with beauty and poetry. We’ve admired these communities for providing evidence of the heart and purpose emitting from a generation of artists that many have ascribed a bleak future to.
