Built again and again from its ashes, the Macandal home illustrates the history of Haitian resistance. Although charred underneath, it is painted traditional white - its color and plantation style architecture are a stark imposition on its natural surroundings.
Though its structure's nature is supposedly regal, the Macandal clan prefer that the agents of the Earth grow up and around the home. DuChamps - the groundskeeper - conducts a chorus of vines, weeds and thorns to clutch at the walls and pillars of the mansion - seemingly intent on bringing it back into the ground. The mansion's neighbors are a variety of graves and ghosts who are eternally bound to welcome guests.
