After two years of planning, Subcircle is thrilled to welcome internationally acclaimed vertical dance company, BANDALOOP, to kick-off Biddeford’s Fringe Fest, powered by Engine. BANDALOOP will perform their work LOOM:FIELD on the side of Biddeford’s newest residential community, Lofts at The Levee, at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Friday, August 18.
Directed by Melecio Estrella, LOOM:FIELD is the centerpiece of BANDALOOP’s LOOM trilogy, a multi-year initiative bringing together a collective of performing artists, climate scientists, regenerative textile artists, a visual technologist, and creative riggers to create performances that deepen and challenge perspectives on the art and industry of textiles. Transforming the building’s façade into a giant loom where stories and dances interlace with the audience. The performance blends ancestral weaving mythologies, traditional techniques of fabric creation, expressions of the ecological and social impacts of a globalized textile industry, and the influence of technological fibers that connect and divide our digital lives into a dynamic performance.BANDALOOP
