Palindrome Performance Group (which i direct) performs with djs. I think
they represent -- at their best -- one of the last vestiges of interactivity
in popular culture. Their events involve the audience as much or more than
any idea of a performer doing something "in front of" a public.

Therefore, welcome to dance-tech, Dado. (The group seems to have a lot of
university people in it, but dont let that scare you off. There are a lot
of grass-roots artists here as well.)

Interactivity is the focus of palindrome's work. We achieve this using
computer-driven electrode and camera systems.


six members of the audience will be wired up allowing them to control the
6-channel the music (by L.U.V. Crew) and lighting. (its part of a group show)

Gotta run...
