N’ap Boule! Welcome to the ticket page for our Haitian Dinner and Dance Performance.
We appreciate your support and are gearing up for an explosion of Caribbean food and Collaborative Haitian-American art. Join us for our Friday Night gallery show featuring photos of Rara Tou Limen rendered by Atis Rezistans artist Fanel Duce. Lets celebrate with drums, drink specials and dinner.
Rara Tou Limen Dance Company has an objective to help nurture and grow Haitian dance and musical traditions in the Bay Area. Accompanied by dancers, vocalists and celebrated musicians, the company brings to the stage a wide spectrum of diverse Haitian dance forms, from vibrant rituals of Vodou, the turbulent legacy of political struggle, to the celebratory and festive dances of Carnival, Rara Tou Limen is at the cutting edge of the evolution of Haitian dance and music in the Bay Area. The use of traditional rhythms, chants and movement integrates the grace, strength, fluidity and precision of Haitian folkloric dance.
Project Hope Art gives a voice to those survivors of the Haitian tent Camps. Project HOPE Art uses art as a vehicle to inspire, to educate and to create intentional whimsy. We work with children in hospitals, orphanages, schools and communities in disaster stricken areas, utilizing art to help establish self esteem, self expression, self respect and stress relief for our students. We create art for art’s sake, while educating through our art, science, nutrition and literacy programs. We twirl in tutus and face paint because it’s good for the soul. Since our inception in January 2010 we have made multiple trips to Haiti and have recently launched a Visiting Artist Program, creating a sustainable way for artists in any medium to share their creativity with our kids and project partners as we strive towards our mission to inspire, heal and improve the quality of life for children in need.
