Compagnie de Danse, Haiti’s acclaimed dance company under the direction of Jean René Delsoin, performs choreography that captures Haiti now—raw and refined, spiritual and powerful. Bold swaths of color alternate with somber, focused intensity. The earthy, expressive voices of traditional drums interweave with the precise grace of classical ballet. Modern dance aesthetics and a deep love of popular moves meet beats that migrated from West Africa to Haiti.
This performance is funded, in part, by a grant from SouthArts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
