This month, we're doing something different and really special with the Creole Convo Meetup Group of Durham!
October 18 in Durham is the world premiere of "Annatations," a dance performance by Haitian born choreographer Gaspard Louis (who is also a good friend of our Meetup Group!)
“Annatations” is a follow-up to Gaspard’s 2012 piece "Souke" (meaning “to shake”) which was inspired by the 2010 earthquake that struck Haiti.
In “Annatations” we see the story of some of the earthquake victims who have perished. They find themselves in purgatory and in need of one last cleansing before they can continue on to their final rest.
See here for an article from the Durham Magazine about the performance and Gaspard’s dance company: http://www.durhammag.com/blogs/durham-magazine-blog/gaspard-dancers-perform-at-reynolds-industries-theater-for-fourth-year/
So for us, on Friday October 18, we'll meet at The Reynolds Theater on Duke's campus at 7:45pm. The performance starts promptly at 8pm.
Tickets to Souke are available from the Duke Events website here: https://tickets.duke.edu/online/default.asp?doWork::WScontent::loadArticle=Load&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::article_id=F6CE8F99-3E8C-447F-812D-477E88916006#
You must buy your tickets ahead of time. Adult tickets are $25 each.
This is going to be a powerful and inspiring evening! All are most welcome! Contact Carlo at [masked] for more info. I'm really looking forward to it! See you there!
Kenbe la zanmi m' yo!
