MIAMI, Etats-Unis - Ce qui devait être un spectacle de collecte de fonds unique a conduit à une série de spectacles de la compagnie de danse, Ayikodans, hors d'Haïti. Chaque soir, de leur performance ont été sorties vendre au box-office, des ovations et des critiques dithyrambiques.
The trouble of trying to find the next performance, of trying to get tickets and the half-hour of "self-congratualatory" introductions by the city - as described by an attendee - is worth it. Crowds can expect a treat of loud drums, expressive dance and intrigue when attending an Ayikodans performance.
Led by its Founder and Artistic Director Jeanguy Saintus, Ayikodans presented pieces, collections of short plays called Zantray (soul) and Eritaj (heritage).
Tiffany Madera, a writer with a taste for the arts, wrote an article in Art Burst where she described it this way:
The lights come up to a cluster of bodies leaning among a set of child-sized wooden chairs. Comforting sounds of water soothe the audience into an earthy, heartfelt vibration as the dancers reach and stretch across each other swimming with the chairs in exciting leaps and extensions.
I was particularly enamored by Eritaj. Saintus has such a deep love and sensibility for the traditional dances of Haiti and that sophisticated and mature love comes across beautifully here. It was neither literal nor abstract, but rather a powerful and inspired synergy of vocabulary, approach, interpretation, and staging. The curves and arches of the Yanvalou were presented in an innovative and exciting way.
The earthiness of the movements were counterbalanced by the unique buoyancy of the choreography and use of core undulations and arms. It was a world of rounded contractions and release, and the effect was felt deeply through the abdominals, spine, and heart — and then up through the head and into the heavens.
