Experimental, graceful, powerful and provocative. This is a swooping, perspective-changing dance performance on the side – yes, the side – of the sheer glass facade on the ANZ building at 20 Martin Place.
Pioneering vertical dance, Bandaloop weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and the art of climbing to inspire wonder and awe in humble, ground-bound onlookers.
With the help of state-of-the-art climbing equipment, the dancers will be suspended from the roof of the ANZ building and glide across the vertical surfaces, multiple stories high, performing a ‘sideways dance’ that is dreamlike and hypnotic.
Bandaloop has performed off the cliffs of Tianmen mountain in China and Seattle’s famous sky needle, along with a myriad of locations across Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Seoul, Soweto, Lisbon and New York. Bandaloop is performing in Australia for the first time as part of Art & About Sydney, an ongoing year-round program of temporary art projects in unusual spaces produced by City of Sydney.
