It burst the bonds of habit with its heartfelt force; it is a beautiful example of art expressing feeling for which words are inadequate.

The Five Points Star

About the Event

With so many international artists on NC State LIVE’s stage this season, it was important to us to celebrate acclaimed North Carolina-based artists like Gaspard Louis. The former Pilobolus dancer turned choreographer and educator, based in Durham, creates visually stunning dance works for his company Gaspard & Dancers.

With his mission to inspire people of all ages through movement, we’ve co-commissioned Gaspard to create a new work with renowned choreographer Doug Varone. Each of these artists are known for their playful physicality and athletic partnering. Gaspard has a particular knack for creating movement that can be enjoyed by folks new to dance and by dance aficionados alike.

All are welcome here. Seriously, grab that friend who thinks they don’t “get dance” and come celebrate one of NC’s finest choreographers.


NC State LIVE strives to make our programming accessible to everyone. If you have an access need or an accommodation request, please email Liza Green, associate director at Learn more about accessibility at NC State LIVE.
