The Durham, North Carolina-based Gaspard&Dancers is a contemporary group of artistically and athletically gifted dancers. Gaspard Louis collaborates closely with those dancers to create works that marry playful physicality with lyrical, athletic partnering. The result: works of haunting beauty and emotional force. Critics have described the dancers’ quality of movement as “exuberant,” “organic,” “buoyant,” and “floating with natural ease.” Since 2009, the company has performed Louis’ works in public performances across North Carolina, New York City, and internationally. He has a particular knack for creating movement that can be enjoyed by folks new to dance and by dance aficionados alike.
