Project Bandaloop: The Intimacy of Spectacle
August 21 - August 23, 2009
Inspired by the possibilities of climbing and rappelling, Project Bandaloop’s choreography draws on aerial, vertical and horizontal movement to craft dances, many site-specific. Under the direction of Amelia Rudolph the work explores the relationship between movement and gravity and the way we frame our expectations of what dance and performance can be. This performance will evolve from the artists working in and on the MASS MoCA’s 19th century buildings and courtyards from "seeds" of choreography developed in their studio in California. Those "seeds" will grow on the walls of the museum into a moving installation of dance, song and unexpected use of gravity and space.
