Coyote Waltz

BANDALOOP returned earlier this month to Yosemite to film their latest project. Coyote Waltz navigates and explores the Native American myth of the trickster coyote to create dances for mountain stages for the National Park Centennial. Using Yosemite as a visually arresting stage, this major new site-reactive work reimagines waltz and illuminates the beauty, vulnerability and complexity of organic systems in the wild.
