BANDALOOP - Sneak Preview in Tokyo
New Balance Harajuku Flagship, Tokyo, Japan, New Balance
In the group’s first formal engagement in Japan, Empire brought vertical dance pioneers BANDALOOP to Tokyo for the opening of the New Balance flagship store in Harajuku. The perspective-changing dance company presented a graceful and dynamic performance, choreographed for an awe-inspiring activation on the walls of the store itself. Two dancers presented three performances during the day, the first in the morning before the official opening of the doors, as the immersive performance stopped busy Harajuku crowds in their tracks and people took pictures and posted videos to social media on the spot. More exciting Empire-produced performances are soon to come from this boundless and innovative group.
