#SFPublicCanvas: Bandaloop Vertical Dance Performances
June 16 – 19, 2016 | 9 pm
Demonstration Gardens, 333 Golden Gate Ave, SF

The project fuses art and technology to create public discourse around the rapidly changing landscape of San Francisco and features special guest performances by Campo Santo, Tassiana Willis, and spoken word artists from Youth Speaks.

Against a projection mapped “canvas” of images and words sourced from the community, Bandaloop’s choreography responds to and illuminates the content, provoking a conversation on technology, community and art. Developed in response to the rapid socio-economic changes occurring in San Francisco’s Central Market district, the work is about the human possibilities, cost of urban change brought on by a growing technology industry, and the voice of communities impacted by the change, expressed through the unique, site-immersive, perspective-changing art of vertical dance.
