In Rendez-vous with Home, Josephine and Suzette, are sent to Haiti to bury their father. Josephine, whose memory of her father is scant, is anxious. Suzette, who never knew the man, looks forward to an all-expenses-paid vacation. Their resulting journey, which combines Haitian oral tradition and dance with humour, explodes the sisters’ expectations imparting new awareness and overturning clichés.
Directed by Dayane Ntibarikure, written and performed by Haitian-born Toronto actor/playwright Djennie Laguerre, Rendez-vous with Home is presented by Black Theatre Workshop, Canada’s oldest Black theatre company.
