For nearly two decades, artist Sally Jacques has won our admiration for breaking new ground, with both her site-specific dances in empty swimming pools and gravel pits and her politically engaged works from The 64 Beds Project to the annual Body Count on Day Without Art. Now, we're also admiring her for breaking new air. The past few years, Jacques' productions have featured performers gracefully dancing in the sky. With ropes, scaffolds, and a corps of courageous, committed, and gifted dancers, Jacques has created epic aerial ballets, charged with the singular beauty of bodies defying gravity and arcing through space, as well as the risk of hanging suspended above a concrete floor. With these dances, the incomparable Jacques has given us the gift of flight.
