Rara Tou Limen presents:

“RTL Vodou Voyage: Destination Cuba” Photo Exhibit & Documentary Premiere

Join us as we celebrate the work of Documentary Photographer, Woosler "Ti Woose" Delisfort, who accompanied Rara Tou Limen on their recent trip to Havana, Cuba this past summer.

Rara Tou Limen Haitian Folkloric Dance Company embarked on a 10-day dance intensive program focused on personal development and technical training in Afro-Cuban dance styles, Yoruba/Lukumi ceremonial traditions, and Cuban-Haitian folkloric traditions. The company specifically explored dance traditions brought to the Eastern shores of Cuba by waves of migration from Haiti.

In addition to the documentary screening of “RTL Vodou Voyage: Destination Cuba”, which chronicles the company’s immersive dance journey, we will also present the work of Woosler's 2-year documentation of Vodou ceremonies in his hometown of Little Haiti, located in Miami, FL.

Additional programming to include Ritual Works by Awon Ohun Omnira Choir, Grupo Mbele (Folklor Afro-Cuban) with Musical Director Pablo Soto Campoamor and Guest Choreographer Asatu Hall, Rara Tou Limen Dance Company, Artist discussion with Woosler "Ti Woose" Delisfort, and Orisa and Vodou altar installations.
