Jean Appolon Expressions is thrilled to present Vwayaj during its Spring production week at the beautiful Lyric Stage theatre. Please mark your calendars and buy your tickets here: Lyric Stage Theater
Vwayaj (The Travel), is JAE’s latest portrayal of the immigrant experience. After years of political tremor, Appolon has woven his personal story together with those of other Boston-area immigrants into this evening-length production. Dancers will tell these stories through bold Haitian contemporary dance set to evocative music composed Haitian Electronic music artist Val Jeanty. At the heart of Vwayaj is an inquiry into some of 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?
