In Martinique, A Major Performance Art Festival


The island of Martinique is playing host to a major new global arts festival this week: the International Festival of Performance Art.

The event is being held through April 22 at the Hotel Imperatrice in Fort de France.

It’s being directed by Annabel Gueredrat and Henri Tauliaut, with the aim of connecting performers, art critics, academics, international curators and art communities of Martinique, the Caribbean basin, the Americas and Europe.

Performance artist Ayana Evans.

It’s the first-ever edition of the festival, with “body-based” performance practices by both French and international artists.

More importantly — it’s the first-ever international art festival on Martinique, one of the Caribbean’s hubs for art.
