My choreography is distinguished by a rigorous acrobatic style, which creates stunning optical illusions in motion and utilizes a sculptural style tempered with emotional content. As a result, my choreography presents messages about the human condition through unconventional movement, intended to provoke audiences on a visceral rather than a cerebral level. I have used technology to add to the viewer's experience of perspective, provoke associations of memory and
metaphor and transform spacial dimensions by the projection of video images on see-through scrims, Plexiglas walls, and the dancers’ bodies themselves.
As for Gerry Girouard's Diamond Realm...Five dancers come together in exhilarating moves, hanging upside down, dancing on walls and on each other. Exerting non-stop...these performers push the limits of physical danger so artfully, you forget the risks. - City Pages
The athletic Girouard wittily danced on the walls and ceilings of specially constructed boxes with the aid of a simple rubber-tipped pole. Girouard's space-cutting kinetics - handstands and carving arm motions - tripped signals to vary the music and lighting. - MIT'S MAGAZINE OF INNOVATION
If you've ever seen one of choreographer Gerry Girouard's work then you know how breath-taking his creative use of bodies and machines can be. Using optical illusions, digital imagery, walls, poles, and human bodies, explores the intersecting planes of gravity. What that means is that dancers will seemingly bounce in every direction, defying not only gravity, but the audience's perceptions. Even if you don't consider yourself a fan of dance, this is a piece that will blow your mind. - Siren
