In partnership with Flux Projects, Bandaloop brought its unique and breathtaking fusion of rock climbing and contemporary dance to the Atlanta Beltline over the weekend.

The intergenerational ensemble of dancers, some of whom have been with the company since its founding, uses climbing ropes and harnesses to perform suspended in mid-air, usually on the side of a multistory building.

Now celebrating its 30th season, the company transformed the Beltline-facing side of 725 Ponce de Leon Ave. (near Ponce City Market) into a vertical stage Friday through Sunday for the world premiere of “Field,” featuring spoken word and live music in addition to the troupe’s signature acrobatics.
