One week ago we landed in Barcelona six month after our departure. Bretagne, A Coruña, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Guadaloupe, Haiti, Dominican Republic. Thousands of nautical miles and hundreds of kilometers. During these months we played more than thirty times, twenty in Haiti, and we filmed dozens of hours. We are finally back home and we feel that we changed, that we are not the same persons that left a few months ago, as it happens every time you live a great trip. We helped sewing the sail and building the mast for an old fishing ship like the Rêve … Continued
Haiti’s capital is a nearly one million people city that lies between the sea and the mountain. It’s impressive to rise the eyes and see the neighbourhoods spreading in the heights, where families lives in a labyrinth of shacks, stairs and small trails that you can only reach by foot.

In Jéremie we meet the puppeteer Ernst Saintrome, with whom we had the honour of playing together in Aliance Française. We also filmed him during a few days in which we reached really remote … Continued
In contrast with the relaxed life in the sea, the 12 days we already spent in Haiti have been intense and it seems as if they had been many more! Once the Rêve de Mousse was anchored and the first part of donations disembarked, we said godbye for a few days to our captain, Max, and took the road to Jacmel. The city of the artists welcomed us with arms opened and with many new friends. Next morning we played our show for the second time here. That same night we found ourselves dancing with the rhythms of drums in … Continued
