Together they created magic, with a spectacular opening of Barentsspektakel 2017, as Bandaloop entered the huge coal crane at the harbour in Kirkenes. Surrounded by the cold and crisp February air, Bandaloop dancers moved, swung, rapelled and created formations and made the crowd gasp in awe. Accompanied by the music of Frost performed live, with ice-cold electronic instruments and Aggie´s voice floating into the dark Arctic night.
