A pioneer in vertical dance performance, BANDALOOP weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and the art of climbing to turn the dance floor on its side - performing ON theaters, museums, skyscrapers and more. The company will premiere a new work commissioned by Meany Center, with music by Gabriel Prokofiev.
