When: Thu., Sept. 25, 8 p.m. and Fri., Sept. 26, 8 p.m. 2014

Durham choreographer Gaspard Louis' thoughts keep returning to his native Haiti. Souke (Shake), his first work addressing the massive earthquake there in 2009, centered on a group of survivors, falling and regrouping over and over in the disaster's aftermath. By contrast, 2013's Annatations, which opened his company's stand at the American Dance Festival, seemed to explore a waiting area in the afterlife, where souls in thoughtful or jubilant contemplation prepared for whatever was to follow. Louis completes the trilogy in his fifth annual concert, which comes at a major turning point. Eight of his company's 10 current members were hired after summertime auditions at ADF. The pressure's on: the new incarnation debuts after only four weeks together as a group. 8 p.m., $15–$25, 125 Science Dr., 919-684-4444, www.tickets.duke.edu. —Byron Woods
