Buena Vista – Design District
Sunday Mar. 17th, 2019, 3pm
Raranaval is a collective performance in the streets, taking the form of a phenomenal procession. RARA is a popular street procession with dance and music celebrating the end of carnival in Haiti. Bodies are highlighted in colorful costumes to transcend social taboos and question borders between modernity and tradition in a public space. Overall, it is a collective response to contemporary individualist practices and habits.
Dancing from the streets of Buena Vista to the Design District is a symbolic act of reappropriation of a gentrificated neighborhood. Through rhythmic dances, chants and sounds of drums, spectators in the streets will be invited to join this reappropriation act in an intergernerational and uniting spirit. RARA costumes will resonate with contemporary fashion designers and art of the Design District.
