Event Description: “The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, in close partnership with the France Florida Foundation for the Arts, are launching the first edition of the 'Tout-Monde Festival,' first Caribbean Contemporary Arts Festival, which will take place in Miami from March 1 to March 4, 2018, at the beginning of Francophonie Month. Under the patronage of Mrs. Christiane Taubira, Cultural Ambassador of the festival and former Minister of Justice of France, the 'Tout-Monde Festival' will by launched on March 1st by Mrs. Bénédicte de Montlaur, Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in the United States, to present contemporary artistic and academic productions from the Caribbean, spanning across all fields: visual and performing arts including music, dance, theatre, film and literature. Reflecting upon the spirit and philosophy of the 'Tout-Monde' — a concept introduced by Édouard Glissant which explores the relation between territories, cultures and individuals with multiples roots in one 'whole world' — the festival will aspire to connect artists, academics and institutions in the United States and the wider Caribbean region, and to reflect upon the meaning of the 'Tout-Monde' today.”
“Curated by two internationnally renowned French Caribbean curators, Johanna Auguiac and Claire Tancons, and directed by the Cultural Attaché of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the USA, Vanessa Selk, the first edition of the festival will center on the theme of Hétéronomonde, confronting ideas of heteronomy and autonomy within the Tout-Monde. This launch edition will focus on 17 artists and authors from the French Antilles—Guadeloupe, French Guyana and Martinique—invited to present their performances, their artwork, but also their films or their published works, in dialogue with 7 other Caribbean artists and authors from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haïti, Puerto-Rico, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela.”
“Among the events, is the exclusive duo performance between musician/saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart and choreographer/dancer Léna Blou during the opening ceremony at Pérez Art Museum Miami which will take place on Thursday, March 1st, 2018. On the following day, Shirley Bruno will present her film Tezen and Kenny Dunkan will present a performance and a unique installation of his work within the permanent collection of The Wolfsonian Museum–FIU. On Saturday, March 3, 2018, at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, Jacques Martial will, for the first time in Miami, perform his play on Aimé Césaire’s Notebook of return to my native land. On the same day, artist Jean-François Boclé, in residency at Fountainhead, will propose a performance echoing the Caribbean market of the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, followed by Le cri de mes racines, a duo dance performance and visual poem dedicated to Haïti by Josiane Antourel and Yna Boulangé. On Sunday March 4, a collective exhibition of contemporary art and photography will offer a larger picture of this Hétéronomonde, featuring artists Loriel Beltran, Robert Charlotte, Julien Creuzet, Adler Guerrier, Mirtho Linguet, Shirley Rufin, Kelly Sinnapah Mary and Jillian Mayer ...”Read more: E-Flux Announcements-Tout-Monde Festival
