Monsieur le President
In 2010 an earthquake devastated Haiti. Filmmaker Victoria Campbell arrived a few days later in what seemed a post-apocalyptic landscape. As she worked in the relief effort, she met a community leader and Voodoo priest named Gaston whose energy created order where there was none.

Topologie
For "Danse: A French-American Festival of Performance and Ideas" Annie Vigier and Franck Apertet sent five dancers across Long Island City following five routes : that is Topologie. Each performer trace and modify the assigned path once a day for ten days. The creators share their ideas about public space and art with CANAPE.

L'angar Rap Festival
Hip hop whether in the neighborhoods of New York City or Tunis, has always been the voice of the oppressed. In December 2013 some rappers from the Maghreb region of Africa to the Mashreq lands of the middle east gathered for the first time in Tunisia for a festival L’angar. CANAPE listens to what the artists have to say.
