Sally Jacques and Blue Lapis Light—her site-specific aerial dance company— have been performing for two decades in various places across Austin, Texas. Since the sites in which her performances are held range from the abstract to those with political undertones, her work drives audiences to look into and appreciate the surroundings' beauty and resolve local and global injustice. Site-specific dance focuses on beauty in an attempt to merge the environment, its elements, and the space's emotional language. A theatrical environment is not restricted to a landscape and instead utilizes the space's inherent features. The environment of the site serves as the collaborator, compared to how perceptions become limited within a boxed frame. Jacques expresses that she enjoys the challenge brought about by site work creation as this entails a spiritual journey.
