This April at thejamjar, Loom Ensemble has brought together an ensemble of 15 actor/dancers from 10 countries, to collaboratively devise a new dance-theater performance.

The characters in the story are created out of the life experiences of the actors onstage – not “playing themselves” but drawing directly on the unique cultural heritage of their ancestors from around the world.

“Bootstraps” is the third full-length dance-theater collaboration of Loom Ensemble and thejamjar. This time, it’s contemporary dance, live music, and a story about present day Dubai.

The stage is set at a highschool reunion of adults who grew up in Dubai. Old friends who haven’t seen each other in years grapple with the meaning of “success.” Post-globalization career goals mix with faded memories of the lives of our ancestors. How can we chase our dreams in the modern world without abandoning our roots?
