A group of individuals who unite; performing aerial dance maneuvers while suspended from cords
Founded in 1991, Project Bandaloop is a group of dancers, climbers and riggers under the direction of Amelia Rudolph who present work that emerges from the intersections of dance, sport, ritual and the environment. The work seeks to honor nature and community through performance. Exploring the boundaries of dance and performance, the choreography employs aerial, vertical and horizontal movement to make site-specific dance. The choreography is performed in a wide variety of sites, from urban towers and skyscrapers to stages, warehouses, boulder fields and large granite walls, freeing the dance and dance space of convention. The work is a marriage of modern dance and rock climbing, culture and nature, mortality and celebration. Honoring the natural world and the human spirit, Project Bandaloop hopes to enrich the quality of life through public art performances that reach large and diverse live audiences, as well as more intimate remote mountain dances and theatre works.
