"When heightening sensibility emerges as a pressing need in all fields of human involvement, awareness, and sensitivity to color may be key instruments against the forces of insensibility and brutality."

Josef Albers

Blue Red Blue Butter is a performance for children, a physical education class for great and small people, and an imagined color game, made-up from the texts of Michel Pastoureau, Josef Albers, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Together, these authors taught us to study the nature of colors and question how we perceive objects, houses, plants, animals, and people.

Colors have a troubled history of travels; they have feelings, friends, and enemies. They teach us codes we instinctively follow, and they deeply influence the environment, behaviors, language, and imagination.
