A late-night outdoor concert held on the lawn adjacent to The Ellington parking structure, across from Orchestra Hall. San Francisco’s extraordinary aerial dance troupe, Project Bandaloop, will add their beautiful, gravity-defying vertical choreography, performing to the dulcet sounds of the celebrated hometown orchestra.
Here’s a photo of them with the garage (the lighting wasn’t the best for photos).
So here’s several clips I shot with my pocket digital camera, my Canon 1100, it worked way better than I thought it would have.
A really short clip of showing the grace of Project Bandaloop as they “dance” on the side of a building accompanied by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Forgive the quality of the middle of this clip, I zoom in on one of the Project Bandaloop performers as she dances on the side of a building accompanied by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
It’s noisy as the baby plays with it’s rattle (not my baby, but he was adorable).
A 23 second clip of showing six of the Project Bandaloop crew “dance” on the side of a building accompanied by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. There were probably 12 people going at the same time.
This is a long clip, almost 2 minutes, but I wanted you to see a chunk of the act instead of the little snippits I posted separately. You can really hear the baby play along with the music, I’d pretty much tuned it out by then.
After a while you sort of turn everything 90-degrees in your head and can see what they’re doing as if on a dance floor (in low gravity).
Here’s a blurry zoomed in shot of a group of four Project Bandaloop members.
This was great, I wish I could have been on top of the parking garage to have shot straight down at them so it would have looked like they were on a flat surface.
