Book & Lyrics by Howard Ashman, Music by Alan Mencken

Arriving at the beginning of our 2019-20 season and just in time to inspire you for Halloween, this gem of an American musical comedy marked one of the first collaborations between composer Alan Menken and lyricist/book writer Howard Ashman. Together they went on to write the equally successful The Little Mermaid and the wildly successful Beauty and the Beast. Inspired by the 1960 dark comedy horror film of the same name, it tells the story of a down-on-his-luck resident of Skid Row (or in our production could it be somewhere in Miami?) who is offered the girl of his dreams, fame, and success from an all-powerful carnivorous plant... but at what cost?

Reading and lecture by Raphael Confiant

Saturday, Oct 26, 2019 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM - English

Pioneer of the Creolite movement, Raphael Confiant interweaves excerpts from his writings with musings on Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Edouard Glissant to unpack issues underlying Where the Oceans Meet, such as the interplay between language and identity.

Show more >>

Raphael Confiant was born in Le Lorrain, Martinique. He studied English and political science at the Sciences Po Aix, and law at Paul Cezanne University in Aix-en-Provence, France. During the 1970s, Confiant became a militant proponent of use of the Creole language, and later worked with Jean Bernabe and Patrick Chamoiseau to create the Creolite movement. Together, the three authors wrote the movement’s seminal text, Eloge de la créolité (In Praise of Creoleness, 1989), in addition to other theoretical texts.

The Creolite movement is often characterized as a reaction to the Negritude movement, which emphasized the African origins of the Antillean people. Creolite, on the other hand, emphasizes the diversity of Antillean ancestry and cultural heritage, which also includes Chinese, Indian, and European influences. The movement seeks to understand the diverse identities and histories of the people of the Antilles through the lens of literature and language and eschews the universal in favor of a diverse view of language and identity. Confiant is a well-known writer in both Creole and French and is currently a lecturer at the University of the French West Indies and Guiana (UAG).
