Compaignie Marie Chouinard
Marie Chouinard creates dance conceived from primeval dreams— earthy and strong, yet shaped by irrepressible secrets and unseen dimensions in time. Selected to launch the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts, the program will include Michaux Mouvements, inspired by poetry and drawings by Belgian artist Henri Michaux, and the U.S. premiere of Gymnopedies, set to piano pieces of Eric Satie. In Michaux Mouvements, the dancers form a stunning silhouette to projections exuding a haunting sense that they, in the artist's words, are connected to "the strangeness of natural things and the naturalness of strange things." This performance contains nudity.

The novel casts an intimate look at the burdens and blessings of family and speaks to trusting your own judgment even when others don’t agree. The bestselling author of Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back is at her best with this wicked, bold and "laugh out loud" funny and poignant story about how a family falls apart and stitches itself back together again. Co-presented with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
