The Re-Cycle Project: Bandaloop Aerial Dance Rehearsals (Sept. 15-16)

Sept. 15 & 16, 4pm-5pm both days

Oakland-based BANDALOOP is one of the Bay Area’s greatest artistic exports drawing crowds all over the world to their awe-inspiring vertical dance performances. Seamlessly blending contemporary dance with climbing and rope access techniques, BANDALOOP has performed in over 330 cities on six continents. West End Arts District and Radium are thrilled to invite them to Alameda Point to start working on an exciting project – just across the estuary from their West Oakland home.

This September, BANDALOOP – led by artistic director Melecio Estrella – and Alameda dance company, Tara Pilbrow Dance, begin the research and development phase of a new work which they hope to share with audiences at Alameda Point in Fall 2024. The site-specific work uses the metal girders of Hanger 25 at the western end of Seaplane Lagoon as a vertical stage to explore themes of climate adaptation, rewilding, and sustainable development in alignment with the City of Alameda’s vision for the De-Pave Park project. Audiences are invited to the eastern facade of Hanger 25 (home to Brix Beverage, Urban Legend Winery, and Dashe Cellars) to watch the dancers in rehearsal on Friday and Saturday, September 15 and 16, between 4pm and 5pm. Bring a stool or blanket and sit back to watch as the dancers explore the artistic potential of this stunning site, and outline the artistic vision for their 2024 performance “Re-Cycle.” Follow it up with a sunset drink at Urban Legend or Dashe Cellars.

The vision for 2024:
Re-Cycle will be a multimedia performance bringing together aerial dance, digital projection, and musical composition to raise awareness of the City of Alameda’s Climate Emergency Declaration and the healing potential of a development plan which centers on sustainability and equity. The sound, movement, and imagery will take us on a journey from the stark industrial present to a greener wilder future.
