Blue Lapis Light
Blue Lapis Light is a site-specific aerial dance company founded by Artistic Director Sally Jacques in 2005. These performances have evolved to explore movement through the air: extending boundaries, defying edges, and suspending graceful athleticism for the risk of igniting ephemeral beauty. The company’s name draws from Ghandi’s description of a meditation practice, wherein the soul merges with Eternal consciousness taking the form of blue light.
