This weekend the dance company Project Bandaloop performed on the Great Wall of Oakland (previously featured here). Twenty years ago the troupe's director was inspired by her rock climbing experiences to combine the rigging technology with dance to defy gravity while making art. The performance premiered a new piece, Bound(less), with original music by trombonist Dana Leong. The entire experience was exciting, moving, and completely unique. It was thrilling to watch the dancers, especially when they leapt away from the wall with grace and precision. Grand jetés are hard enough to do on a horizontal surface, let alone on a 10-story wall. I'm guessing at least a 1000 people were at Saturday's performance, bringing their own chairs, blankets, and food as they waited for the performance. Checkout the Bandaloop website video to get a taste of their performance style. And check out ABC Wednesday for more takes on "J".
