“Antiretrovirals and Water Refugees” at MIT

“Antiretrovirals and Water Refugees: A Living Newspaper on Haiti,” directed by MIT guest artist and puppeteer John Bell and produced by MIT’s Dramashop, deploys bunraku puppets, shadow theater, toy theater, video and live music. The performance is a kind of parable about Paul Farmer's Partners in Health’s fight against AIDS in Haiti. And in the middle is a didactic history of the Caribbean island nation. (Disclosure: I’m friends with Bell and a number of the other folks involved.)

“Antiretrovirals and Water Refugees: A Living Newspaper on Haiti” at MIT’s Kresge Little Theater, 48 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, at 8 p.m. April 9 to 11 and April 15 to 17. Tickets $8, students $ 6. Post-show discussions April 9, 10, 15, and 16. For advance tickets visit here.
