This four day intensive will focus on BANDALOOPing technique in the studio and outside on the Breuner Building, formerly the Great Wall of Oakland.
Drawing on decades of experience, we will gain loft with rope and harness. Fundamentals of safety, gear training, sound body mechanics, harness dance, partnering and recuperative techniques mix into full-bodied, multi-directional dancing. We will also touch on aerial composition and performance by explore site-reactive composition tools and the theatrical possibilities of vertical space. Students will be supported and inspired to make dances, learn repertory, collaborate and co-inspire as a group. All gear will be supplied.
