The glass facade of 20 Martin Place will be temporarily repurposed as a huge, vertical dance floor for the world's most kinetic (and vertigo-inducing) public space activation project, as part of Art & About Sydney.

Bandaloop, under the guidance of choreographer and artistic director Amelia Rudolph, aims to honour nature, space and community by mesmerising unsuspecting crowds with jaw-dropping performances.

Dancers will execute intricately-choreographed moves at heights that most performers would quickly decline. As a result, the message behind each performance is both graceful and provocative, challenging the way we would normally think about the space we occupy each day.

The US-based performance group has toured the world extensively, re-defining the idea of dance by performing at places not generally thought of as dance floors: think museums, atriums, billboards and cliffs. Bandaloop combines new climbing technology, stunning costumes and dynamic physicality to bring performance art to new crowds.

See the high-flying act at Martin Place on Friday, August 18 at 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 5pm; Saturday, August 19 at 12pm and 2pm and Sunday, August 20 at 12pm and 2pm.
