Actions Caribéennes Théâtrales (ACT) provides a cultural dialogue between the United States and the Francophone Caribbean. Through six contemporary plays by emerging or established Caribbean writers from Haiti, Martinique and Guadeloupe, ACT aims to raise awareness and recognition of Francophone
Caribbean Theatre using English language translations, publications, and stage readings. By exploring passion, desire, and the collective experience of trauma and loss after natural disaster; by denouncing social, racial, and gender violence; and by staging real drama life and leading crime investigation, Caribbean dramatists tells us the stories and history of Caribbean people. Engaged in a creative and innovative mixing of languages (French and Creole), they put forward a politically engaged theatre while renewing drama aesthetics.
