ABOUT

Created for Shawl Anderson Dance Center’s Youth Ensemble, An Aggregate of Substance played with embodying Goffried Wilhelm Leibniz’s concept of the monad, a corporeal substance made up of the primitive soul and primary matter.  To gather further information for sequencing the piece, Lewis looked into monads as they are used in functional programming.
