As we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the METCO program in Boston and World Language Week, the French Department and METCO program at LS are presenting a Haitian dance performance by Jean Appolon Expressions (JAE) “ANGAJE” on Friday, March 10, 2017 at 7:30 (reception at 6:30) in the Kirshner Auditorium. It is free to attend!
The word “Angaje” translates to “committed” or “engaged”, with origins relating to the protest music used as a representation of the founding of the world’s first black republic. The show is inspired by the struggle against homophobia and the power of Haitian cultural tradition in the fight for justice.
Jean Appolon Expression combines the old traditions of Voodoo religion with new contemporary dance moves to re-create the rhythms that are at the heart of Haitian culture.
The show ANGAJE has been performed at prestigious universities such as Harvard University, Lesley University and American University and have had sold out performances at the Boston Center for Arts!
