The brainchild of choreographer McKersin Previlus, Lakaï Dance Theatre takes its name and driving purpose from the word for home in McKersin’s native tongue of Haitian Creole. LDT draws from Jazz, Hip Hop, and Afro-Diasporic styles while incorporating powerful spoken word and live music aspects to paint complex stories that reflect the realities of inner-city existence. Exploring these narratives is their latest performance piece “The Block” – an intricate and honest look at the nexus of urban cultural incubation.
