In advance of FIELD by BANDALOOP, Flux Projects presents a public conversation with sustainability strategist Catherine Bottrill to amplify some of the larger ecological issues in the textile and fashion industry that have influenced and informed how FIELD was developed.
This fall (October 1- 3) Flux Projects is excited to present the world premiere of FIELD by BANDALOOP. Known around the world for its vertical artistry and activism, BANDALOOP celebrates the human spirit, nature, and communities through dance while using climbing technology to expand and challenge what is possible.
Directed by Melecio Estrella, BANDALOOP’s FIELD is a large-scale, free, outdoor public vertical dance theater piece that deepens and challenges our perspective on the ancestry, art, and industry of textiles. FIELD brings together a collective of performing artists, regenerative textile artists, a sustainability strategist, and creative riggers to turn an urban wall into a performance space, interlacing ancestral weaving mythologies and traditional techniques of fabric creation with expressions of the ecological and social impacts of a globalized textile industry.
