Michelle Boulé
The Monomyth

Following the trajectory of the soloist (Michelle Boulé) across precarious encounters with isolation and ritual identification, The Monomyth illuminates the emotional and choreographic transformation of the feminine/feminist hero, reimagining Joseph Campbell’s concept of myth-making as a “challengingly persistent suggestion of more remaining to be experienced than will ever be known or told.” Boulé’s solo relies on an exquisite somatic alchemy to metabolize these shamanic narratives, the slow burn of disco and environmental sound fragments to conjure an ancient, yet intimate, consciousness in the present.
