Plaza Theatre - Boston Center for the Arts
March 17-18, 2017
Through workshops, conversations and site-specific activities that comprise a comprehensive community-based process, Jean Appolon will involve Boston-based Haitian immigrants in the creation of Lakou Ayiti, a full-length dance production. Award-winning author Edwidge Danticat will guide the creation of the Lakou Ayiti narrative that will incorporate immigration stories of Haitians living in Boston as part of the production soundscape. Lakou Ayiti will meditate on the “lakou” and its loss in the Haitian imagination in a way that also speaks to a universal condition regarding where we find belonging and home.
