Blue Lapis Light's Edge of Grace
Blue Lapis Light leaves its epic aerial work for an intimate and uniquely compelling dance on scaffolding
Arts Review  September 24, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...There isn't a building in sight. Which feels a bit strange for a Blue Lapis Light production, since so much of this aerial performance company's work has involved dancers moving atop, dangling from, and gliding across monumental edifices in the urban core: towering federal buildings, banks, hotels; the Seaholm Intake building; the Long Center; the Bullock; the Intel shell..."

Blue Lapis Light
Before the ugly concrete shell of the Intel building goes away for good, it will be the site for something beautiful: Sally Jacques' next large-scale dance, 'Requiem'
Arts Story  April 21, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...But before it goes away for good, the concrete eyesore is actually going to become something beautiful – or at least be the site for something beautiful. For site-specific choreographer Sally Jacques has been granted permission to set her next Blue Lapis Light production, Requiem, on the shell..."

Blue Lapis Light's Belonging, Part One
The work's dancers, whether on the ground or sailing through the air, were beacons of human hope and empathy
Arts Review  September 27, 2018, by Jonelle Seitz
"...In the reprise of Sally Jacques' 2017 work Belonging, Part One, each Blue Lapis Light dancer, whether on the ground or sailing through the air, tethered to a structure many stories high, was a beacon of human hope and empathy in a context with no walls, no limits. In front of an audience nestled between the hopping restaurants at Seaholm District Plaza, a group of dancers on the ground gazed out and up, at once human and angelic, plaintive and benevolent..."

Moving Toward the Edge of Grace
The new and the familiar at Blue Lapis Light's new home
Arts Story  September 17, 2015, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Maybe the story began in 1998, at a concrete dumping ground in Southeast Aus­tin, when Jacques and six other dancers, in collaboration with a multitude of other artists, including choreographers, musicians, and sound and lighting designers, performed the first of a trilogy of dances – Probe One: Impossible Destiny, Trans/Form, and Blue Pearl – on custom-built construction scaffolding...."

Blue Lapis Light takes youth away from risk and on a journey
Arts Story  December 14, 2012, by Dawn Davis Loring
"...Sally Jacques calls them "youth in transition," referring to the young people with whom she and the teachers from her Blue Lapis Light aerial dance company have been collaborating for the past 18 weeks. They are youth who need a range of services and support and who may be new parents, unemployed, or even homeless..."

They Might Be Angels
For Blue Lapis Light, dance artists Laura Cannon and Nicole Whiteside become heavenly creatures
Arts Story  October 5, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...Nicole Whiteside and Laura Cannon are not, in fact, winged messengers from on high, but for the past few years, they've gotten so good at aerial dance work that they can pass for angels. As leading dance artists for Blue Lapis Light, the company founded by site-specific choreographer Sally Jacques, Whiteside and Cannon have raced sideways across the faces of buildings, launched themselves off ledges and glided artfully through the evening sky, and hovered and twirled four stories, 10 stories, 12 stories above the ground, to the amazement of audiences gathered below..."

Dance Fever
With Hot September Flurries, a corps of Austin choreographers burn up the Blue all month long
Arts Story  September 16, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...Hot September Flurries makes a welcome addition to the arts calendar – you might even say a desperately needed one, for while we're not hurting for talent, all those local choreographers (30, 40, 50, more?) are widely dispersed across the landscape: a few in each of the larger companies (Ballet Austin, Tapestry, Sharir+Bustamante); many, many more spread among the smaller, independent companies of which Spank is part (and Forklift Danceworks and Ballet East and Deborah Hay and Aztlan Dance and Wicked Cricket and Blue Lapis Light and Kathy Dunn Hamrick and ...); some lodged in academe at the University of Texas or Austin Community College; some in private spaces such as Center Studio or Cafe Dance; and some just operating by themselves. That dispersion, combined with the fact that the majority of dance companies perform just once or twice a year and then for only a few shows, makes it easy for the rest of the city to miss them, to not know they're there..."

Cultural Benefits
Blue Lapis Light and the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival and Miniature Golf Tournament host fundraisers for their respective creative enterprises
Arts Story  May 12, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...• Before Blue Lapis Light artistic director Sally Jacques can transform the former Intel Building into a site for death-defying and transcendent dance this summer, she needs to raise a little filthy lucre. To that end, she's hosting the Blue Moon Dance & Fashion Soirée Thursday, May 18, 6-9pm, at the Cedar Street Courtyard, 208 W..."

Concrete Vigil
In transforming buildings into altars, Sally Jacques offers a place to keep watch
Arts Story  September 25, 2014, by Jonelle Seitz
"...These memories have resided with Jacques for three decades of making performance and dance work, most of it in Austin. Since the 2005 launch of her site-specific aerial dance company Blue Lapis Light, she's drawn them closer and closer..."

Gift Guide: Support Stocking Stuffers
Give a gift that keeps on giving – to your local creatives
DAILY Arts  December 10, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...For instance, we know of several cultural organizations that are in the midst of crucial crowdfunding campaigns. The funds they raise in the coming weeks will help them provide greatly enhanced access to their programs or secure new facilities in which they'll be taking what they already do so well to new heights (and in the case of Blue Lapis Light, that's quite literally)..."

Austin Critics Table Awards 2013
Arts writers raise their glasses to outstanding art in list of nominees
Arts Story  May 24, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...The most recognized musical was Ragtime, produced by Zach Theatre to open its Topfer Theatre, also receiving seven nominations. Earning six nominations each were The Poison Squad, an ingenious devised drama by theatre collective the Duplicates; the comedy Under Construction, another madcap theatrical mash-up by Charles Mee directed by David Long for the Mary Moody Northen Theatre; and the Blue Lapis Light aerial dance work Heaven-Earth-One, which has been revived and can be seen on the Long Center Terrace – and above it – through Sunday, May 26...."

Adam Conaway
Remembering the behind-the-scenes worker for Blue Lapis Light and CO2
Arts Story  August 27, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...Adam Conaway was not one for the spotlight, but he was no less valuable to the performing arts groups he worked with than his friends who commanded the stage. With the Creative Opportunity Orchestra and the aerial dance company Blue Lapis Light, Conaway did the kind of unglamorous behind-the-scenes work – grant-writing, Web design, publicity, office chores, administrative duties, setup and tear-down – that make all the difference in the survival of small, independent arts groups..."

Zach's take on Greek myths takes flight with help from Blue Lapis Light aerialists
Arts Story  August 6, 2010, by Barry Pineo
"...Enter Nicole Whiteside, the creative associate director of Austin's Blue Lapis Light, they of the transcendent aerial dance Requiem, performed on the shell of the partially constructed and abandoned Intel building Downtown. "When Dave and I looked through the theatre," says Whiteside, "I just couldn't believe they were going to put on this very complex production in that tiny, tiny space..."

Risk for Beauty
Sally Jacques sends dancers flying off a pair of federal buildings to give us a moment of transcendence
Arts Story  June 15, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...On one wall, black-and-white photographs capture LBJ and all the president's men in sober conference, making clear that this was a seat of power – which makes it all the more incongruous a setting for the Austin choreographer, who's as counterculture as they come and has been at least since Johnson sat in the Oval Office. But Jacques has a purpose here: The Pickle Building and the Homer Thornberry Judicial Building across the plaza to the north are the sites for Constellation, the new aerial dance work by her Blue Lapis Light company, and the dancers are being allowed to use LBJ's suite, Jacques announces with a mixture of delighted pride and astonishment, as their dressing room...."
