COMING TO AN IMAX NEAR YOU
"There’s something exciting that happens when different cultures come together as they have in America. One of the things that happens is incredible creativity."
America's Musical Journey, a new film for IMAX and giant screens, premieres February 15 at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Featuring artists including BANDALOOP, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Jon Batiste, and Lil Buck, the film travels across the US with Aloe Blacc as he explores America's unmatched collision of cultures.

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."
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!
