BANDALOOP Vertical Dances on the UArizona Campus MALL!
Arizona Arts Live (formerly UA Presents) brings us BANDALOOP to dance vertically on the UArizona Mall buildings during Reading Days March 9-10 (no Spring Break this year). It’s outside! Wear your masks and stop the spread!
Mar 8, 10a-1p & 3p-6p | Mar 9, 1p-6p | Mar 10, 10a-1p & 3p-6p | Mar 11, 1p-6p
BANDALOOP honors nature, community, and the human spirit through perspective-bending, vertical dance. Using buildings on the UArizona Campus Mall as a dance floor on its side, BANDALOOP creates a new and original performance suited for the times we are all living in.
A pioneer in vertical performance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and climbing technology to turn the dance floor on its side. BANDALOOP’s site-reactive work has been presented worldwide in theaters and museums, on skyscrapers, bridges, billboards, and historical sites, in atriums and convention halls, in nature on cliffs, and on screen.
BANDALOOP will be performing continuously during the times listed above. These experiences are part of the March 9-10 Reading Days. The faculty senate approved a decision to replace the 2021 Spring Break with a series of Reading Days spread throughout the Spring 2021 semester. This adjustment to the academic calendar is a necessary component of our ongoing commitment to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the Tucson community and across the nation by reducing travel by faculty, staff and students.
Founded by choreographer Amelia Rudolph and under the artistic direction of Melecio Estrella, BANDALOOP re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world. The company trains dancers and youth at home and on tour, and has performed for millions of people in over 22 countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas, and Asia, and on screens in films and digital media.
BANDALOOP is based in Oakland, CA, where the company creates work for its bi-annual home season and for touring performances presented around the globe each year. Education and outreach are also an intrinsic part of the company’s mission. In addition to its ongoing work with youth, BANDALOOP offers regular classes, camps, and intensives at its home studio and in the mountains, and team building programs for business executives.
Events may be viewed in these formats: list, week, day, map, photo and month.
