In conjunction with this season's virtual DanceAfrica, participating choreographers from local, national, and international companies join together for a conversation about how traditional Haitian forms are translated and interpreted into contemporary performance today.

Jefferson (Rara Tou Limen), Fritzlyn Hector (The Fritzation Experience), and Adia Tamar Whitaker (Àṣẹ Dance Theatre Collective) for this informal discussion, facilitated by Thomas F. DeFrantz, founding director of the Collegium for African Diaspora Dance and a professor at Duke University.
