Kán ak son


This video proposes a sound walk through Puerto Principe streets’. Our guides are blind or visually impaired people, equipped with their canes with an added mic. During the workshop, a leitmotiv was chosen by the participants to accompany the displacement of each one of the characters. Kán ak son builds a sound topography of the city, starting downtown and taking us far away.

With Enock Dézius (dragged cane), Frantzy Désinord Raphaël (groping cane), Jerry Hilaire (gran moun cane), Jerry Darismond (swept cane), Remise Alexis (pushed cane), Roseline Alexis (two steps cane), Sargine Loraüs (banging cane) and Jonas Lamarque (Mise en scène, without cane).
