Fèt Lakaï

Presented by McKersin
Zumix 320 Sumner St. , Boston

A dance company of the people, Lakaï Dance Theatre roots itself in stories of home to highlight the issues affecting our communities and neighborhoods. Fèt Lakaï launched in New York City in 2022. Now it is time to bring the party home to Boston for a full weekend of events. Lakaï Dance Theatre will be performing original works with additional performances by Boston’s own ToriTori, Brandie Blaze and sounds by DJ TROY Frost

Fèt Lakaï is an experience that brings a caliber of performance traditionally reserved for theater into neighborhoods and community spaces for the ultimate house party vibe. This event is a collaboration between the performers and the audience where we blur the boundary beyond the stage and perform amongst the people. Our goal is to create a safe space for people to vibe, meet their tribe, and let loose.” We want to see dance circles breaking out and hear y’all screaming “ayyyye” from every direction.” says McKersin, Lakaï founder and Artistic Director. So, whether you come with your crew or solo Fèt, you are welcome to party ‘til you sweat.
“Lakaï [Lakay]” means “home” in Haitian creole and that’s what we hope you feel when you’re with us. – McKersin, Lakaï founder and Artistic Director.

Fèt Weekend is Friday November 24 and Saturday November 25, 2023 at Zumix, 260 Sumner Street East Boston, MA 02128. Doors open at 6pm and performances start at 7pm. Early arrival is strongly encouraged because the spatial capacity is intentionally intimate. Tickets start at $30 with options for premium and VIP packages up to $100.

Art is what pushes society forward. As performers our job is to reflect the seen and unseen through movement and inspire audiences to take up space in new ways. Lakaï’s founder and artistic director McKersin believes that dance has the power to unite us in ways that go beyond words because of the way movement transmutes energy, inspiring the artist in us all. His belief is that both the performer and the audience are both involved in every performance and each plays a role in advancing the world together.
