BANDALOOP

To highlight this year’s FLUX, our annual fall event, BANDALOOP will activate the walls of the new 725 Ponce building with vertical dance. The work will be inspired by the layers of history of the Old Fourth Ward, the present day vibrancy of the BeltLine, and the imagined futures of Atlanta. It will respond structurally and architecturally to the building’s façade, taking into consideration the surrounding landscape and built environments.
