“Our application is intended to really encourage and without a doubt force choreographers and artists in the direction of exploring new approaches of generating and viewing their very own artwork,” explains Julia Gleich, co-founder of Norte Maar and originator of the CounterPointe Series. “By creating a tight deadline, the hope is to restrict the options for “second-guessing” so that new functions evolve spontaneously, most likely chaotically,” she continues. “We believe there must be no hierarchy of art type in these procedures, and that neither creator should really inherently lead the collaboration. So with minimum interference we allow every single crew finds its have path–constantly encouraging intrepid adventures into unfamiliar territory.”
