“Contemporary art production in the Caribbean”
Our professional workshops are organized to build links between artists, institutions and art professionals for future collaborations on Caribbean contemporary art.  

Looking at the quickly shifting social dynamics of the Caribbean basin and the mutating nature of its diaspora, the panel brings together four young artists from different parts of the region. They will discuss both how the Caribbean context influences and is reflected in their work, and how their own variegated life experiences inform and rethink the conditions of Caribbean culture production. 

Presented by: Gean Moreno, Curator of programs at ICA Miami & Stephanie Seidel, Associate curator at ICA Miami

Moderated by: Erica Moiah James, Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Miami, founding Director and Chief Curator of the National Gallery of the Bahamas, member of Small Axe 

With the artists:  Minia Biabiany (Guadeloupe), Laura Castro (Dominican Republic), and Jamilah Sabur (Jamaica)

“Tiféfé and the conch”
The talented musician, youth author and storyteller Nathalie Lezin will give a special performance, telling old Creole tales based on her book “Tiféfé and the conch”, introducing music and drums. With Caribbean punctuation, a dynamic narration in French and English, humor and rhythm, Lezin will tell Tiféfé’s story and relation to a conch, and his links to nature, and will invite the children to play drums.

Brandon Cruz, musician and founder of the South Florida Percussive Arts Center, will join the performance and generously lend his drums to the children.

Buena Vista – Design District
Sunday Mar. 17th, 2019, 3pm

Raranaval is a collective performance in the streets, taking the form of a phenomenal procession. RARA is a popular street procession with dance and music celebrating the end of carnival in Haiti. Bodies are highlighted in colorful costumes to transcend social taboos and question borders between modernity and tradition in a public space. Overall, it is a collective response to contemporary individualist practices and habits.

Dancing from the streets of Buena Vista to the Design District is a symbolic act of reappropriation of a gentrificated neighborhood. Through rhythmic dances, chants and sounds of drums, spectators in the streets will be invited to join this reappropriation act in an intergernerational and uniting spirit. RARA costumes will resonate with contemporary fashion designers and art of the Design District.

A performance curated by Giscard Bouchotte with artists : Henri Tauliaut, Rachelle Geneüs, René Schneiderson and film by Charo Oquet.

7pm – Theater performance – “Hurricanes”
During a stormy night, a lonely woman is confining herself, when another young woman knocks at her door, seeking shelter. They’re not yet aware that they got stuck in the most terrifying cyclone…

The 2nd edition of the Tout-Monde Festival: Echo-Natures presents: Hurricanes, a contemporary tragedy from Martinique. Guiding us through a life-threatening double investigation, the two main characters run towards a devastating, mindblowing truth; a secret that unites them.

In 2016, Cyclones was presented ten times in Martinique & Guadeloupe, then made its way to the notorious Festival d’Avignon OFF 2017 where it was awarded a trophy “Coup de Coeur” from the Press Club Avignon-Vaucluse. Cyclones had no less than 2000 spectators in 32 performances.
