FOUNDER/ARTISTIC DIRECTORAmelia is a choreographer, community leader and dancer. Her work is informed by aesthetics, non-traditional relationships with gravity, ecology, natural and built spaces, community and human relationships. She founded BANDALOOP in 1991, bringing together dance, climbing and varied off-the-ground movement through site-reactive work on cliffs, urban structures and in theaters. Her choreography has explored dance in theaters and on buildings and cliffs all over the US and around the world. Amelia is continually challenged and inspired by her experiences in nature, with her dancers and with communities that unearth and clarify her values, identity and art.
