Looking forward to Project Bandaloop here August 21 – 23?  The week preceding the performances follow company founder Amelia Rudolph and operations manager and rigger Thomas Cavanaugh on twitter to learn about the work behind the magic you’ll see in their vertical dance on our 19th century buildings.

Collaboration in the air

There are few things that are more exciting than seeing some of our favorite performing artists collaborate together to create a new song, theater work, dance piece, or a combination of all of the above. Trickpony, showing here on March 8th, is one of those collaborations. Outstanding performers ballerina Sally Rousse and aerialist Chelsea Bacon combine thier specialties to create an amazing piece of performance art that can only be described a genre bending. This is one collabrotive effort we encourage you not to miss.

Read the Albany Times Union story about Trickpony and its collaborators.
