Staged in and around Fort Mason Center's iconic 55,000 square foot Festival Pavilion "Harboring" is inspired by Fort Mason's past and present especially as a place of transition. See a sneak peak of the show here. This world premiere by vertical dance pioneer BANDALOOP is inspired by images of the travel, memory, maritime experience and the fluidity of water. The audience will move through the space to view the dances which take place mostly off the ground including on a stack of shipping containers and an oversized swinging frame.

“Harboring” is choreographed by Amelia Rudolph in collaboration with assistant artistic director Rachael Lincoln and the dancers of BANDALOOP, with art direction by celebrated designer Jack Carpenter. With collaborators Jamielyn Duggan, costumes; Jim French, lighting; Todd Laby, set; Mark OrtonGideon Freudmann and Jesse Olsen Bay, music.

Risks and challenges

BANDALOOP is building its first indoor show in five years. Having had marked success with our last evening length work "Bound(less)", staged for outdoor vertical walls, we're excited to launch this new indoor site-specific work, which includes dynamic set interactions, free-hanging work, swinging and experimental harnesses. Having worked closely with art director Jack Carpenter, set designer Todd Laby, lighting designer Jim French and the musicians, artistic director Amelia Rudolph feels this unique partnership, honed over years of working together, will yield a new BANDALOOP fruit.
