Transgenre and Reality Drama in the Works of Mimi Barthélémy


Mimi Barthélémy is a Haitian dramatist whose works restore the cultural role of storytellers by celebrating the importance of the live word throughout World History, the ethnography of her native land and her personal genealogy. In her "Reality Drama," Mimi Barthélémy intermingles aesthetics with poetry and drama, as her fables, sung tales, or plays become artistic creations. She blurs time and space when she stages in a positive light several worlds that coexisted in subversion, in malignant hybridity between the dominant and the dominated, between the group and the individual with diverse roots.
