Be transported by the sights, sounds and smells of Haiti right in your own backyard. Haitian and Afro-Caribbean rhythms of the Peace Players Drummers will pulse through the events as the aroma of Island Flavor food truck fills the air. Stalls of Haitian crafts, displays of traditional dance and exhibition of the works of contemporary Haitian artists will delight the eye and mind (artists and installations may vary, but may include Jean Guerly Petion and Fabiola Jean-Louis among others on any given date) These exhibitions are open and free to all. If MaidenLA participants are moved to continue their Haitian experience they will be eligible for special MaidenLA discounted tickets to our August performance of "Haiti." "Haiti" was written in 1938 as part of the Federal Theatre Project and is an epic melodrama set against the country's fight for freedom. This rare revival offers a story rarely seen on stage in America. This production of "Haiti", including pre-show events, is made possible, in part, by a grant from The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation.

Venue Special Notes:

Parking is available for a fee in our parking lot or free along Topanga Canyon Blvd. 
Wear shoes suitable for walking in a park-like environment and if you may choose to stay and see the evening's performance -- bring a sweater.  It can get cool when the sun goes down.
