Kreyol Karavan

Music and dance meet at a crossroads. Kreyol Karavan wishes to explore this exact junction through a trip within "Creole identity." Kreyol Karavan was created to limelight our creolity and find our common grounds through diverse though similar experiences of "métissage." 

Our music and dance performance will allow you to travel through time, from Guadeloupe to New Orleans, through Martinique and Florida. We will debate and challenge our perceptions of "creolity" with a seminar right after the performance. 

It felt necessary to implement Kreyol Karavan on different territories (Guadeloupe, Florida, Louisiana). We wanted to allow our diverse artists to expose their native regions and their legacy through collaborative work. We have created a performance based on numerous past and current artistic and cultural movements.

Beyond the desire to expand our artistic legacy, the project's purpose is to question the specific features of historical and political patrimonies. Kreyol Karavan is a transcultural project, through which we will explore Antillean references (music, poetry, traditional dance, environment, lifestyle).
