About

Jean Appolon Expressions dance company presents Vwayaj (The Travel), its latest portrayal of the immigrant experience. After a year of political tremor, Appolon has woven his personal story together with those of other immigrants into this evening-length production. Dancers will share these stories through bold Haitian contemporary dance set to evocative music, paired with eye-catching costumes and visuals.  At the heart of Vwayaj is an inquiry into some the most basic questions of the human experience: Where is home? What do we sacrifice when we leave home? What are we seeking on the other side? How do we create support within community?

Approximate Run Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes, one intermission. 

Please be advised that the Saturday performance at 3:00pm is a family friendly performance and is slightly shortened
