Welcome Kantara Souffrant to "Haiti: Then and Now"!


 Kantara Souffrant, PhD (candidate)



Kantara Souffrant is a Haitian-American artist-scholar. A PhD Candidate in Performance Studies at Northwestern University, her work examines feminist and queer art practices in the post-quake Haitian Diaspora. As an installation artist and performer her approach to art creation is informed by her studies of African Diasporic faith and spiritual practices in which ritual, performance, art creation, and communal transformation are inseparable. She has shared her artistic and scholarly work at numerous venues including: The Ghetto Biennale (Haiti), The Caribbean Cultural Center and African Diasporic Institute, Judson Church, New York University, praxis place (Chicago), Northwestern University, Fisher Gallery (Oberlin, OH), The University of York, and the Whitney Biennale as part of the Dance Diaspora Collective.
