Compagnie de Danse Jean-René Delsoin

Compagnie de Danse Jean-René Delsoin

Season 1: 2012

This company of high-powered dancers and drummers, led by choreographer Jean-René Delsoin, cultivate a nuanced, sophisticated view of Haitian culture. Traditional movements, classical ballet and modern dance techniques along with Haiti's rich rhythms and sounds are projected in bold, emotionally resonant moments. Delsoin's work captures Haiti now - raw and refined, spiritual, powerful, and precarious. 

Each [Compagnie de Danse Jean-René Delsoin] work focused on a personal theme and reflected its country's roots, incorporating moments of raw, rugged beauty and times of silent, refined artistry. For those in attendance, it was a one-of-a-kind experience.
