BANDALOOP in collaboration with Roomful of Teeth

“BANDALOOP’s dancers not only dance vertically, but they also dance upside down, even with the soles of their feet pressed against a wall, defying gravity and confounding the imagination.”  - The New York Times

“The music of Roomful of Teeth is not easily categorized or confined by genre...Their singing is both sophisticated and primal, and their blend of voices produces a sound that is at once ancient and contemporary.”  - The New Yorker

An innovator in vertical performance, BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography and climbing technology to turn the dance floor on its side. Founded by Amelia Rudolph and under the artistic direction of Melecio Estrella, BANDALOOP re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world. The company trains dancers and youth at home and on tour, and has performed for millions of people in over 300 cities in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas, and Asia, and on screens in films and digital media.  WATCH

Roomful of Teeth is a Grammy-winning vocal band dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice. By engaging collaboratively with artists, thinkers, and community leaders from around the world, the group seeks to uplift and amplify voices old and new while creating and performing meaningful and adventurous music.

Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the band was incubated at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, where members first developed the taste and skills for using the voice in unheard-of ways. Through experimentation, exploration, and plenty of failures, the group learned that the boundaries of the human voice are never what they seem, that rules can be bent, even broken and perhaps should be.
