The second half of Laurentide maintains the tense demeanor but allows movement to build and develop over time, taking away some of the immediacy and drama of the first half. The dancers perform unison with sweeping arm movements and sleek texture.

This lyrical, highly physical work was a perfect showcase for the dancers’ versatility: stately, poignant, technically demanding.
Marcie Sillman, And another thing…
Laurentide also contained some of the most breathtaking partnering, and glorious group synchronicity ot the entire evening. Ever single dancer was given a moment to shine in the creation and it is easily one of the all-time best pieces of art that Whim W’Him has ever produced.
