Krik? Krak!, an evening of Haitian culture, celebrates the concept of One Human Family by inviting the entire community to share a meal, and an evening of entertainment with new friends and neighbors.
The name Krik? Krak! derives from a Haitian call and response tradition, and is a name given to folk festivals in the island nation. Traditionally, a storyteller stands and says “Krik?,” to which the audience replies “Krak!” and then the story begins.
Our evening begins with a traditional Haitian meal, served buffet style, after which storytellers and poets will read and present from the stage. The tables will then be cleared for a dance party featuring the 15-piece band Orchestre les Christophiles.
Diversity is our community’s greatest asset, what sets us apart from other places people might choose to visit or live. The Studios embraces that diversity and seeks to connect young and old through the age-old formula of breaking bread, sharing stories and cutting loose on a dance floor.
