Gaspard and Dancers
Friday and Saturday, September 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m.
Haitian-born Gaspard Louis rose to prominence as a dancer and choreographer with the internationally renowned Pilobolus Dance Theatre. His work has been praised for breathtaking combinations of Pilobolean shape building and fluid lyricism that resonate in the emotional core of human nature. In five seasons with Durham-based Gaspard & Dancers, Louis has built a distinct and deeply moving body of work. The Trilogy—“L’Esprit,” “Souke,” and “Annatations”—is his response to the devastating 2010 earthquake and its aftermath. Sponsored by the SHS Foundation and by the Haiti Cultural Exchange.
