UNO
Three people. A wall. Conversations by means of movement.
‘uno’ is about the importance of being part, getting the balance, and having everything under control. It is about the fear to look at, fear about glances, fear to know yourself and the fear.
Loneliness. Going forward, running, and maybe breaking away, chasing what? What?
Interactions, behaviors and movement structures by means of Fibonacci maths sequence. The fusion between the personal physical language and the classical dancing will be the instrument to carry out this performance.
“Someone is any nameless face we pass each other in the street. This particular way anyone has to go along with himself, to take himself by the hand. (…) It´s always someone you meet by chance: someone who goes or comes, that pushes or crawls and when going by, allows a glimpse of his history.”
Miguel Morey

STRINGS

In Fall 2017, the world premiere of STRINGS, commissioned by the Meany Center for the Arts at University of WA, Seattle drew a full house for three performances. Watch the trailer for this exciting new work!

The premiere featured an outdoor opening performance, and an indoor performance featuring original music by London-based composer, DJ, and producer Gabriel Prokofiev.

"The world premiere of BANDALOOP’s latest work, 'STRINGS,' shows the theatrical depth and verve the company can conjure from their unusual set of skills...music, movement and relationship dynamics all fuse into a perfect package."

Seattle Post Intelligencer

On the heels of a well-received pitch at ISPA NY in January by Amelia Rudolph & Gabriel Prokofiev, BANDALOOP is now booking STRINGS worldwide for 2019 and beyond. Performances at MUPA 2019 in Budapest are confirmed!
