Michelle Boulé: White
Danspace Project’s Commissioning Initiative has commissioned over 480 new works since its inception in 1994. Our winter season opens with reprisals of recent Danspace Project commissions.
“I crave more time inside this bizarre world, vacillating between the potent qualities of the material and the immaterial. White contains multitudes of meaning and purpose that takes days to metabolize…a very promising statement in Boulé’s ever-deepening choreographic practice.” (Cassie Peterson, Brooklyn Rail)
Presented in Spring 2015, White, is the second evening-length work by Michelle Boulé featuring Boulé, Lauren Bakst, and Lindsay Clark.
White references quantum physics and BioGeometry (an environmental science which looks at the qualitative frequencies emitted by different shapes, sounds, and color to create harmonic biological energy systems). Boulé considers how movement affects space —the invisible architectures and frequencies created by choreographic form— and how our material bodies are participants in an immaterial world.
