A new performance, Niicugni (Listen), created/performed by recent Bessie Award winner Emily Johnson with Aretha Aoki, composer James Everest, violinist Rachel Golub and lighting designer Heidi Eckwall. The Yup'ik word Niicugni is a directive to pay attention, to listen. Housed within a light/sound installation of handmade fish-skin lanterns, Emily Johnson's Niicugni quietly compels attentiveness, layering multiple dances, live music, stories, and histories into a space occupied by past, present, and future.

By popular acclaim, Chouinard's company returns to Miami with two stunning works: Henri Michaux: Mouvements, created at the Impulstanz, Vienna International Dance Festival (Vienna) and Etude for Duets. Henri Michaux: Mouvements includes 64 stage-height pages of India-ink drawings by Belgian painter and poet Henri Michaux. Works by Marie Chouinard portray dance as a sacred art with respect for the body as a vehicle of that art, a virtuoso approach to performance and the invention of a different universe for each new piece.
