When: Sept. 29-30 2016

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 & FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

Gaspard&Dancers

Gaspard Louis's dance bona fides are in order. You can glimpse in his choreography the playful geometrics—and the poignancy, at times—of the works he co-created as a member of Pilobolus Dance Theater. In recent years, he's memorialized the plight of his native Haiti after the devastating earthquake of 2010. His 2016 company concert draws inspiration from three new sources: the raw intensity of neo-expressionist Jean-Michel Basquiat in the world premiere of Portrait; the work of noted regional choreographer Justin Tornow in Forbidden, a new duet he made for her; and a new work by choreographer Ronald West in a guest appearance by Black Irish Contemporary Hip Hop Company. The night closes with two repertory works: Anemone (2009) and Tota Pulchra Es/You Are All Beautiful (2015). —Byron Woods
