10 good plans to make this weekend in Fort-de-France, between culture and heritage – all the news about Martinique on the Internet

The weekend (May 21 and 22) is very rich in events associated specifically with the memory of the abolition of slaves but not only … a small non-exhaustive inventory of things to see and do in Fort-de-France.

1- Fountain myths

Three dance pieces that will delight their imaginative side, but not only, for the artistic technique of the Chaillot-Théâtre national de danse dancers. Nothing to say: The duo dance great. We really have a good time whether it’s parents or kids (view from 6 years old). And those without children: go ahead too! Myths designed, revised and largely corrected, it’s a very good plan…

> Tale in the Fountain: Saturday May 21 6.30 pm / From 6 years / Rates: 25 euros for adults and 7 euros for children / Atrium Tropic: J-Cazotte Street, in Fort-de-France.

Contact: 0596.

2- Rene Louise’s performance

René Luiz, a visual artist from Martinique, tells us that it was “definitely his last great performance”… he chose the theme of “pilgrimage”. A poetic and spiritual journey, a walk among the performances of “Blues and Afro-Caribbean”.

It’s free and this morning at Tropics Atrium…

> The Rene Louise Show at 10 am, at The Latrium, J. Cazot Street in FdF / Contact: 0596.70.79.29

The village is located at the foot of the Lumina-Sophie Tower and many water and land activities are planned this week, on the French shore, including a free boat start on Saturday …

In addition, the city and restaurants have decided to put the small plates in the big plates with the “Voyage Gourmet All Flavors Away” process, until May 30th.
