Mission Statement

Our vision is to create transcendent works of beauty that are offered, without religious denomination, as prayers for the planet. Using aerial techniques informed by classical, interpretive and modern dance, Blue Lapis Light is committed to challenging physical limitations and inspiring our audiences with a sense of wonder.

Description

Blue Lapis Light is a site-specific aerial dance company founded by Artistic Director Sally Jacques in 2005.

Blue Lapis Light seeks to transform urban environments into inspired works of art, creating beauty that transcends space in their expansiveness, connecting us to a sense of wonder, possibility, and hope. 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.

Blue Lapis’ works are mostly large-scale productions, taking place in non-traditional public environments: warehouses, abandoned structures, federal buildings, power plants, or scaffolding at the shores of Lady Bird Lake. The company’s first aerial rig was a rope strung across an abandoned swimming pool where a dancer in a net was pulled from one side to the other. With each work, dancers now explore new apparatuses and develop aerial vocabulary complimentary to the possibility and synergy of on-site collaboration.

Blue Lapis Light continues to develop large productions on prominent public architecture. Sites include the historic Seaholm Power Plant, J.J. Pickle and Homer Thornberry Federal Buildings, Hyatt and Radisson hotels, Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Long Center for the Performing Arts. With a hope and prayer for transformation, the company seeks to create works of beauty that continue to touch our collective awareness.
