Water Bodies 

Wednesday, Jul 17 2013

Bandaloop, the vertical San Francisco dance troupe directed by Amelia Rudolph and Rachael Lincoln, brings its intrepid acrobatics to Fort Mason this week in a new work, Harboring. Drawing on the venue's extensive history since the Civil War as a coastal defense post, a harbor for army transport and cargo ships, and headquarters for the National Park Service, Harboring has dancers springing from rigs that suspend their whirling bodies from walls, shipping containers, and piers. Audience members are asked to travel through the venue with the dancers, creating a scene of constant movement that illustrates the transitions — arrival, departure, war, ecological change, and the shifting of generations — that characterize this storied outpost by the sea.

July 18-21, 8:30 p.m.; Sat., July 20, 2 p.m., 2013
