Join the creation and performance of Loom’s next full-length dance-theater performance: Bootstraps.

We’re still welcoming actors and dancers to join the Bootstraps ensemble, alongside the professional artists leading the project.
Click here for more about the show itself.

The ensemble rehearsal process will take place in the form of a monthlong intensive “Dance Theater Workshop.” Loom creates “devised theater,” meaning performers are a part of the creation of the show itself. You will learn text, choreography, and music created by the New York ensemble. You’ll also be guided through the process of creating your own character, spoken lines, movement and even song, to be included in the performances! The show already has an outline, and has been developed around a collection questions, but the final performance will be shaped by what you bring to the table as an artist!
