Program 2018

The Tout-Monde Festival will take place over four days, in four emblematic venues of Miami, each of them representing a distinct neighborhood, community and heritage: the Pérez Art Museum Miami (Downtown), the Wolfsonian Museum (Miami Beach), the Little Haiti Cultural Complex (Little Haiti) and the Mana Contemporary (Wynwood).

The public will be invited to circulate from one place to another with a dedicated Tout-Monde shuttle. In each place, the program will offer academic discussions, visual art installations, performances and film screenings.

“Tout-Monde Trio Urban Performance”, an inspirational urban show that brings the new generation at the forefront of change.

@R HOUSE WYNWOOD, 2727 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Three prominent street artists: Caribbean spray painter Ronald Cyrille, Caribbean slammer Black Kalagan and Miami-Based Street Dancer Stephon Gibson join their talent and energy in this spectacular performance that will bring to life the “Tout-Monde”/ “”Whole-World “ philosophy of Edouard Glissant.

Together they will create on stage a metaphor of our universe in movement, unexpected and interconnected. Together they will celebrate freedom and fraternity. They will invite us to “act in our location and think with the world.”

After the show, the public will be invited to connect directly with the artists via master classes on spray paint, dance and slam.

“I have the Whole-World inside of me” said Edouard Glissant. Do you?
