Storyboard P

The Body is a Sanctuary That Floats

In our opinion, Storyboard P is one of the greatest dancers on the planet. Michael Jackson evolved dance beyond a classical physics that understood bodies moving in beautiful trajectories, to a kind of Einsteinian moonwalk that folds space and time. But Storyboard P practices a unified lived theory of Afrofuturist dance physics in which relativity and quantum mechanics are finally married—a universe of entanglement, non-locality and a revolutionary understanding of gravity, in which bodies have to be sanctuaries that float—able to teleport, disappear, appear.
