“Every time the dancers of Ayikodans step on stage, the spiritual richness of this people, their great historical struggles and their hopes for the future come alive and are expressed with the body.” – Panorama Magazine
“Haitian dance troupe Ayikodans provide intense, thrilling performance.” – Miami Herald
“Lean, narrow-framed and muscular to a degree exceptional even for the dance world, they’re built like greyhounds — but with the ferocity of tigers. Add powerful live drumming, and Ayikodans has a terrifically intense — and at times overwhelming — impact.” – Miami Herald
“An Artcho Danse performance is the expression of a new vision of dance, a gesture bordering on a cry.” – Kettly Mars

“[An] intense, thrilling performance!”- The Miami Herald

Following 3 sold-out seasons at the Arsht Center, Ayikodans, “Haiti’s premier dance troupe” (Miami New Times), returns to Miami to thrill audiences with a world premiere, Tribulations, and an expanded version of Danse de l’arraignée (Dance of the Spider) – all performed by the company’s incredibly fierce dancers and accompanied by an ensemble of drummers and vocalists.

Created by Artistic Director and Choreographer Jeanguy Saintus, a 2008 Prince Claus Award recipient, Tribulations is a dance in three movements, depicting the familiar temptations that often lead to tribulations – the things that can either bring us happiness or pain.
