Haitian Laughter is constructed around the lodyans, a narrative genre that has blossomed in Haiti as an art of miniatures. The substantial reduction in scale that presides over their creation allows only the significant features to remain, like a medieval illumination, a Japanese bonsai, or simply a small-sized map of an immense territory. This makes each miniature a "dwarf-sized saga," which lets us glimpse the larger dimension of the original of which it is a reduced model.
