Saudi Arabia to La La Land
BANDALOOP performed at the Mayor of Los Angeles' dedication ceremony last week for La La Land Day on Los Angeles City Hall. "Dancing on City Hall is as magical as it looks. Giving dance to the public in celebration of the human spirit is what we are all about," Associate Artistic Director Melecio Estrella shared in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
Dallas and Midland opened their arms to BANDALOOP with warm Texan hospitality for Dallas Arts Month and VIVID2017 respectively. While in Dallas the group was joined by a team from MacGillivray Freeman to shoot a forthcoming film for IMAX screens about national treasures - stay tuned!
April kicked off with BANDALOOP's Saudi Arabian debut for the Historic Jeddah Festival. With performances on the centuries-old home of the Baeshen family over the course of several nights, the hospitality and friends made in the air, on the ground, and in the Red Sea are unforgettable.
