LOOM on summer solstice

Wishing you a beautiful summer solstice: a day for us to embrace lightness, honor the light that lives within us all, and allow it to shine outward brightly — particularly after showing ourselves and one another this past year+ that we are survivors, interconnected & powerful beyond measure.

LOOM is BANDALOOP's newest evening-length work by Artistic Director Melecio Estrella. It juxtaposes the timeless cross-cultural power of fabric to hold, comfort, adorn and sanctify the human experience with the fallout of the textile industry and modern consumerism...and a reminder for us to focus on the former & the threads which connect us all as we collectively seek progress from the pandemics we face.

BANDALOOP presented excerpts of this performance in Oakland for Earth Day 2021 in partnership with Visit Oakland.

Here's to new beginnings and continuing to reconnect with friends and family around the world!
