Project Bandaloop creates a blend of dance, sport, ritual, and
environmental awareness. The choreography draws on aerial, vertical and
horizontal movement to craft dances. Their work explores the relationship
between movement and gravity while stimulating viewers’ awareness of their
natural and built environments. Many of their performance, developed
specifically for the presentation site, draw on aerial, vertical and
horizontal movements made possible through climbing and rappelling. Since
1996, Project Bandaloop has enjoyed performing for nearly a half-million
people all around the world. Some highlights of Project Bandaloop’s
performance sites include the Seattle Space Needle, the water towers in
Kansas and South Africa, on mountain ranges and waterfalls throughout
Yosemite National Park, and in Macau, China.
Project Bandaloop was founded by Amelia Rudolph in 1991, and is centered
on exploring nature, community, and the human spirit through dance.
Rudolph is a choreographer, dancer and environmental steward. She brings
together dance, climbing and off-the-ground movement through site-specific
work on cliffs, buildings and in theaters. Rudolph is dedicated to
bringing dance to new audiences and enhancing public awareness of their
surroundings. She began dancing ballet at the age of six, and began
climbing in 1989. These experiences as well as others have, and continue
to, influence her art. Through her work Rudolph has explored dance on
building and cliffs in North America, Portugal, Brazil, Canada, Africa,
Argentina, Lithuania and Austria.
Don’t miss this awe-inspiring event! Mark your calendars for July 2
through 4 and see Project Bandaloop defy gravity on the new Resorts
Rendezvous luxury tower.
