Pioneers in vertical dance performance, BANDALOOP interweaves intricate choreography, dynamic physicality and climbing technology by turning the dance floor on its side, taking their performances out of the studio and onto skyscrapers, bridges, billboards, historical sites and cliff faces. Using the façade of the Hogan Campus Center as its “stage,” BANDALOOP offers three ethereal 15-minute performances on September 8. Guests are welcome to bring blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy the outdoor performances.

Part of Celebrate! Festival of the Arts at Holy Cross

In case of inclement weather, performances will take place on Saturday, September 9, times TBD. 

The BANDALOOP residency is funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
