The visually arresting Henri Michaux: Mouvements features dancers dressed in black costumes on a white floor to create a choreographic version of India ink drawings and poetry by Belgian poet and artist Henri Michaux. The company also performs Gymnopédies, a ballet created around the theme of the duet. The 11 dancers, who worked daily with a piano teacher during the creation of the work, each take their places at a piano to play Erik Satie’s intriguing piano works of the same name. In both of these works, Chouinard “travels to the very depths of our collective psyche and brings what she finds there out into the open for all to see.” (bachtrack.com)
