An anchor produces a documentary about his native country. Moved by his own ignorance, he is overwhelmed by a feeling of incompleteness. A fortuitous combination of circumstances leads him to Haiti for the first time, where he begins to retrace his history and understand what ties him to his homeland. There, he is confronted with the pain of two powerful “earthquakes”: the one that has just shaken the country, and one inside of himself. Where does Didier Lucien come from? To answer this question, he tells you the story of the first independent Black republic, he takes on the persona of president-for-life François Duvalier, and he sings, dances and splits himself in two through the magic of video. Without a hint of shame, he offers you a look inside the “marvelous” world of dictatorship. Date: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM / Thursdays, February 2 and 9 at 7 PM. *The February 2 and 9 presentations of the piece will be followed by a discussion with the creators.
