DANCING IN THE SKY
BANDALOOP creates in a wide variety of contexts. Our site-specific performances are presented in theaters and museums, on skyscrapers, bridges, billboards and UNESCO Heritage sites, in atriums and convention halls, in nature on cliffs, and on screen in films and video content. We partner with performing arts organizations, corporations, government agencies, brands and tastemakers to present one-of-a-kind performances. BANDALOOP is committed to creating experiences that bridge cultures and people, and inspire global empathy.

TYPES OF LOCATIONS
Celebrating city architecture delivers BANDALOOP dance to the urban public, making possible the previously unimagined. Through grand openings, building launches and city-wide arts festivals, vertical dance brings the community together in one-of-a-kind, location-aware experience.
From the high granite walls of Yosemite to the rural landscapes of Tianmen Mountain in China to the Indian Himalaya and the Italian Dolomites, BANDALOOP has drawn upon its mountaineering roots to span the world’s iconic mountain settings and continue to explore rock formations that call dance to height.
From UNESCO heritage sites in Old Jeddah City, Saudi Arabia to the Golconda Fort in India to 15th century cathedrals in Mexico, BANDALOOP honors a location's rich history and delivers its beauty to the public in dance form.
Open air sports arenas and stadiums like the Stade de l'Amitié in Gabon, Africa or the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, have showcased BANDALOOP’s use of aerial space, with the company soaring above audiences in pendulum arcs that drive dynamic choreography.
BANDALOOP goes beyond the proscenium stage to activate unexpected indoor spaces, offering audiences new perspectives in familiar settings. Atriums, convention centers, cathedrals and warehouses are just a few examples of spaces that offer BANDALOOP dance as living installations.
BANDALOOP creates dynamic evening-length shows for festivals and performing arts centers worldwide. From proscenium theaters to university campus centers to landmark city buildings, BANDALOOP partners with the host organization to present one-of-a-kind indoor and outdoor dance performances, engage with local communities and draw diverse audiences for the arts.
#PublicCanvas is an evening-length outdoor performance which unites vertical dance, local content, music and spoken word to reframe the experience of urban community. PublicCanvas was performed in Providence, RI, and will have performances in Oakland and Atlanta in 2019.
“Strings” is BANDALOOP’s latest indoor creation, featuring an original score by composer/DJ/producer Gabriel Prokoﬁev. Commissioned by University of Washington’s Meany Hall this spellbinding work uses ropes and innovative rigging systems to explore our connections and the ways we anchor to, connect with, effect, restrain and release one another.
BANDALOOP'S Harboring moves through images of travel, memory, the fluidity of the ocean, rope craft and maritime industry using the medium of site-reactive multi-dimensional dance. Harboring is an immersive indoor and outdoor workthat brings BANDALOOP's celebrated scale and excitement within arm's reach of the audience. The sold out world premiere of Harboring took place at the historic Fort Mason Center in San Francisco in 2013 and has gone on to tour Maui, Nashville, and Taiwan.
