Portland Ovations goes beyond the proscenium with vertical dance pioneer Bandaloop. Seamlessly weaving together dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and the art of climbing, Bandaloop turns the dance floor on its side. The company’s unconventional venues run the gamut from the New York Stock Exchange and Seattle’s Space Needle to natural wonders like Yosemite’s El Capitan and majestic cliff faces in China. Together Ovations and Bandaloop scale new heights with free performances on the facades of two of Portland’s most iconic buildings.
All presumptions about gravity are thrown askew and so the mind doesn’t quite believe what the eyes are telling it.”
