6th International Body Music Festival

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at The Great Wall of Oakland (see times)
The Opening Celebration will be Tuesday, November 5 at 7:30pm with a free public performance on the Great Wall of Oakland, by vertical dance company BANDALOOP with a live score performed by the Body Tjak Ensemble, which will actively engage the audience into the performance. The Great Wall is located at the intersection of West Grand and Broadway, and audiences are encouraged to bring a mat or reclining chair.

BANDALOOP (Oakland, CA) local vertical dance pioneer BANDALOOP will open the festival in collaboration with Keith Terry’s live soundtrack from the Body Tjak 13 ensemble. BANDALOOP honors nature, community, and the human spirit through perspective-bending dance. BANDALOOP seamlessly weaves dynamic physicality, intricate choreography, and the art of climbing to turn the dance floor on its side. Under the artistic direction of Amelia Rudolph, the work re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world. BANDALOOP performs in theaters and museums, on skyscrapers, bridges, billboards and historical sites, in atriums and convention halls, in nature on cliffs, and on screen.

6th International Body Music Festival at the SFJAZZ Center and other venues in the San Francisco Bay Area from Tuesday, November 5 to Sunday, November 10, 2013. The only festival of its kind anywhere, the 6th International Body Music Festival (IBMF) presents over 20 events featuring traditional and contemporary Body Music styles from the U.S., Brazil, Indonesia, Turkey, Canary Islands, Greece, Canada and other popping, stomping, humming corners of the world. Over six days, the festival will feature concerts, teacher trainings and workshops for adults and teens, body music open-mic, a family matinee and in-school assemblies. For the first time, the festival has a geographic focus, presenting the majority of the activities in a walkable area in Downtown Oakland, before moving to the new SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco on the weekend.

From the tundra to the tropics, people can’t resist the urge to snap, clap, step, holler, and sing artful music. This universal resonator—our bodies—and its myriad global sounds ignite audiences with music you can see, dance you can hear. It’s the oldest music on the planet, and it’s brand new.
