Inside the Pillow Lab: Dancerly Intelligences


For this project, Jacob's Pillow hosted three artists at the intersections of dance and technology for the first ever Dancerly Intelligences residency. ABOUT THE ARTISTS Grisha Coleman is a time-based artist working in performance and experiential media. She’s used her time with Dancerly Intelligences to experiment with projections on various physical objects as she develops motion portraits of people overlooked by current motion capture efforts. Catie Cuan is a pioneer in the nascent field of ‘choreorobotics’. She used her residency to choreograph her part of an 8-hour robot duet. Andrew Schneider is an OBIE award-winning, Drama Desk nominated performer, writer, and interactive-electronics artist. He used his time at Jacob’s Pillow to explore impossible synchronicities in movement between two people and sound.
