A FREE event (no ticket necessary) for the entire community, BANDALOOP brings their vertical performance to the University of Denver campus. Gliding, dancing, falling with style – the members of BANDALOOP seamlessly weave dynamic physicality with intricate choreography and climbing technology to turn the dance floor on its side. Literally, the outer walls of the Ritchie School of Engineering and Science and the Sie Complex, all within walking distance of the Newman Center! The performance is part of an afternoon of fun and delight that includes food trucks, and performances by Denver based groups Playground Ensemble, Presenting Denver and students from DU’s Lamont School of Music. The kick-off to the celebration of the Newman Center’s 20th anniversary will truly be an “off the wall” experience.
BANDALOOP re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world. They will be performing LOOM:FIELD, directed by Melecio Estrella. LOOM:FIELD is part of a trilogy of large-scale, outdoor public vertical dance pieces that deepens and challenges our perspectives on the art and industry of textiles. Bringing together a collective of performing artists, climate scientists, regenerative textile artists, a visual technologist and creative riggers, the piece turns a building’s facade into a giant loom, where stories and dances interlace. Read more about LOOM:FIELD here. There will also be an interactive loom demonstration led by Denver’s Fancy Tiger Crafts.
