ARTS@TECH FUN AND FREE SERIES: The Georgia Tech Office of the Arts begins a two-year residency with the internationally acclaimed vertical dance company BANDALOOP. The company founded by Amelia Rudolph will be in residence in late September to begin work on #ATLPublicCanvas, a major event that will encompass participation from across campus and the community leading to performances in Spring 2020.
During the week of September 24, Georgia Tech students, staff and faculty are invited to view rehearsals and attend a discussion with the artists. There is no charge, but tickets are required. For tickets, press the "Buy Now" button for the "Arts@Tech Fun and Free" listings.
Because of the nature of a rehearsal, activity will be start-and-stop. Rehearsal and Artist discussion schedule:
9/24 from 3-6 pm - open rehearsal
9/25 from 2-4:30 pm - open rehearsal
9/25 from 4:30-5:30 pm - Lecture/Demo/Q&A with Bandaloop artists

In addition, opportunities to participate in the 2020 performance through images, spoken word, and hip-hop dance are available, and more information can be found at arts.gatech.edu/engage.
The presentation of BANDALOOP is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
