The 2021-2022 season begins with an unforgettable community event!
The side of the Moss Arts Center building becomes a dance floor for BANDALOOP, performers who use dynamic physicality and intricate choreography to change perspectives, inspire wonder, and challenge what is possible. Watch dancers rappel off the side of the center in this awe-inspiring season opening event that will mesmerize and delight audiences of all ages.
BANDALOOP uses climbing technology to expand and challenge what is possible. Founded by Amelia Rudolph and under the artistic direction of Melecio Estrella, the company re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and fuels the imagination of people around the world, having performed live for millions of people in over 22 countries, as well as on screens in films and digital media.
BANDALOOP honors nature, community, and the human spirit through perspective-bending dance. A pioneer in vertical performance, Bandaloop seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and climbing technology to turn the dance floor on its side. The work re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world.
BANDALOOP is funded by the City of Oakland, the National Endowment for the Arts, and a diverse set of individual donors who support our work from around the world.
These free outdoor performances celebrate the human spirit, nature, and community, exactly what we all need!
All are welcome and no tickets are required.
