Voices of Haiti is coming to Washington, DC, for two nights only next week!
This Pulitzer Center-produced multimedia performance explores Haiti’s 2010 devastating earthquake through the lives – and voices — of ordinary Haitians, many affected by HIV/AIDS. Voices features the poetry of Guggenheim Fellow Kwame Dawes, the music of Kevin Simmonds and soprano Valetta Brinson, and the photography of Andre Lambertson. The performance grew out of a year-long award-winning Pulitzer Center reporting project examining HIV/AIDS in Haiti after the earthquake.
Voices of Haiti will be at the Corcoran Gallery of Art
500 17th Street NW
Washington, DC 20006
Wednesday, July 25 and Thursday, July 26.
The free performance starts at 8:30 pm both evenings.
On July 26, there will be a special pre-perfomance panel on “Using Art for Social Engagement” featuring Dawes, Lambertson, David France (filmmaker of “How to Survive a Plague”) and Patricia Finneran (Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program and Fund). Reception and performance follows panel.
