Dance: Michelle Boulé—Presentation
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Michelle Boulé is a dance artist and teacher who was based in New York for 20+ years and is currently living nomadically. Her research in energy work, somatic practices, spirituality, and mindset/psychology provides the framework from which she dances, teaches, and makes dances, with a desire to create aesthetically enlivened experiences that remind us of the potential of what and who we are.
She is a “Bessie” Award winning performer, having collaborated with Miguel Gutierrez (2001-16), Bebe Miller, John Jasperse, and Deborah Hay, amongst others. Boulé has received commissions and presentations from The Chocolate Factory, Danspace Project, Triple Canopy, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Summer Stages Dance @ICA Boston, River to River Festival, American Realness, The Met Breuer (with Okkyung Lee), and ISSUE Project Room.
