 The work of Dodard stands on its multiple riches, its unusual beauty and the opulence of its creative totality at the margin of old crouches of traditional criticism, obsessed by annoying quotations and outdated historical points of reference. The work of Dodard vibrates by itself in the autonomy of a creative gesture which renews and modifies in a perpetual quest out of clichés and stereotypes. --Franketienne By elevating the immense tradition of Haitian people to an accomplished ‘oeuvre d’art’, Dodard offers us the instruments for originally renewing the laws of genres and bring enrichment to world culture that a West in which popular life has been de-poeticized by a decadent capitalism cannot provide. -- Babacar M’Bow
