DIGITAL: Sorry I Missed Your Show: Michelle Boulé

Oct. 7, 2020, 6:30 pm8:00 pm



Michelle Boulé will present excerpts from 3-4 different works. The leading theme or topic is how her own journey of healing, growth, and self-inquiry has shown up thematically in her work–the subjects she chooses to research, the structures she then created, and the ensuing understanding she gained (aka lessons learned). She hopes to present this evening in the context of how dance has been a great teacher and guide for her and to share the growth that it has asked her to undertake, as well as the foundation it has given her to expand her life into new arenas.
