Poto Mitan will honor and tell the stories of a singer, a journalist, a storyteller, and a drummer – four Haitian artists that shaped the way the world saw Haiti and Haiti saw itself. Choreographer and artistic director Djenane Saint-Juste will utilize traditional Haitian rhythms and dances and fuse them with contemporary movement to tell the stories of Lucienne Pierre, Jacques Roche, Mimi Bartelemy, and Frisner Augustin. This homage will present an image of Haiti that is not often depicted in the news: one of strength and beauty.
