Fèt Gede at Pioneer Works

10.11.18

hcx fet gedeHaiti Cultural Exchange and Pioneer Works dedicate a night to Haitian Vodou and the ancestral dead with a Fèt Gede.

Live DJ sets by Val Inc. and DJ Sabine, performances by Sheila Anozier and Okai, and a ceremony (10pm) led by houngan Jean-Daniel Lafontant.

Fèt Gede celebrates ancestors, death and life by venerating the pantheon of gede lwa (spirits) through music, dance, food and offerings.

The gede are said to be the liveliest of all the lwa, the polyrhythmic sounds and fast-paced movements of the dancers are used as further attractors for them to manifest themselves here in the realm of the living. Each and every sacred object and performance is an invitation for the gede to travel to this realm as well as to honor and celebrate them. The Vodou-inspired artworks included in the PÒTOPRENS exhibition currently on view at Pioneer Works highlight the extent to which the religious practice inspires and feeds Haiti’s artists. A fèt gede further highlights this link between Vodou and art by activating the object’s divinity.
