THE AYITIAN THEATRE



      A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE AYITIAN MYTHOLOGY     

If Prometheus could have ascended to the heavens, stolen fire from the gods, and descended; if Aeneas could go down into the underworld, crossing the dreadful river of the dead, etc., and talked with his dead father; why can Oswald Durand not return into the world of mortals, using the ancestral gateway of “Okan” from the antiworld?

THIS IS THE TYPE OF CLASSIC THEATRE THAT  HAS CHALLENGED THE INTELLECT OF THE AUDIENCE AND ALL THE FOES OF THE TRUE ESSENCE OF AFRICAN CULTURE IN THE AYITIAN SOUL.  THIS IS THE POINT WHERE WE STOP CALLING A TRANSLATED CLASSIC FROM OTHER CULTURE, "AYITIAN CLASSIC."  "RECLAIMING CHOUKOUN" IS GENUINELY, AYITI'S FIRST CLASSIC FOR THE STAGE.  ON THIS VERY SPECIAL STAGE-SETTING PICTURE, THE DIRECTOR AFFORDED HIS AUDIENCE TO GLANCE AT THE AESTHETIC ILLUSTRATION OF THE VODOUN DIVINITIES FROM THE AFRICAN TRADITIONAL RELIGION AS IT WAS NEVER BEFORE EXPOSED OR ENVISIONED. THE FINE ARTISTS, REPRESENTING THE HIGHEST MYTHOLOGICAL GODS, ARE:  Edeline Clermont (Grann Ayizan or Mother Nature) [Uper Center Stage], Carl Fombrun (Danbala Wedo: the Father-Sun), [Left Uper Stage] Margaret Armand (Ayida Wedo: the Mother-Moon), Ingrid Llera (Èzili Freda-Virgin of Love), [Right Uper Stage] Pantaléon Guilbaud (Ogoun Feray-War Minister), Nadège Etienne (Èzili Dantò-Virgin of War), Anthony Bayas (Azaka Mede-Minister of Agriculture), and [Lower Center Stage] Mark-Edner Jeudy (Atibon Legba, the Gate-Keeper or the Son).  I hope you enjoyed this crash course about the Ayitians' amazing subdued culture of beauty and mystery!
