Critical Acclaim for STRINGS & East Coast Tour

A whirlwind Fall tour including performances for College of the Holy Cross, Middlebury College, and Portland Ovations brought BANDALOOP's vertical work to new audiences along the Eastern Seaboard.
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. 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."
