Developed at Miami Theater Center
Directed by Sarah McCarthy
Miami native Inez Barlatier is a multifaceted performer of Ayisyen (Haitian) descent. In AYITI: Stories & Songs From Haiti, she celebrates Ayisyen (Haitian) art and culture through energetic drumming and singing, colorful costumes and traditional dances, folktales and visual art. Songs and phrases in Kreyòl Ayisyen (Haitian Creole), explore themes of community and gratitude.
Joined onstage by her family band of talented young artists, Inez leads children on a journey to a land rich with history that has often been overlooked. “I never saw a show celebrating Ayiti as a child,” she says. “Even in Miami, many children don’t know these stories. I want to change that, and share Ayisyen culture with children everywhere.”
