FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL D’ART PERFORMANCE - MARTINIQUE (FIAP 2019) Welcomes Performers, Curators and Art critics for their Second Iteration - November 5-12, 2019
We're headed to Martinique as proud sponsors of Martinique's upcoming International Performance Art Festival, FIAP, held November 5-12 2019. The festival is co-curated by Caribbean artists Annabel Guérédrat and Henri Tauliaut. FIAP 2019 stretches across 10 locations, allowing both local and visiting performance artists to become fully immersed within the local community.
The festival's programming is uniquely orchestrated to not only presented solo performances, but ore often, collaborative works between artists hailing from different parts of the world. It is clear that Guérédrat and Tauliaut are interested in building longstanding relationships amongst their local community of Martinique.
This year's FIAP 2019 performers hail from all over the world including: Hector Canonge (NYC, USA), André Eric Letourneau (Canada), Isil Sol Vil and Marina Jarsy Baner (Spain), Alex Côté (Montreal, Canada), Nyugen Smith (New Jersey, USA), Alicja Korek (Paris, France). Ludgi Savon (Martinique), Miao Jiaxin (NYC, USA), Lara Kramer (Canada), Marvin Fabien (Dominica), Henri Tauliaut (Martinique), Yves Bercion (Guadeloupe), Junior Estimé.
Stay tuned for FIAP2019 reviews, recaps and live feeds of performances on Insta via our Director + Founder, Quinn Dukes. As curator for Satellite Art Show, Dukes will also meet with performers to discuss their performance practice and upcoming projects. We look forward to seeing you in Martinique!
During the week, performances are scheduled in Fort de France and an international workshop open to all.
