Dimanche Gras - “I am Carnival” - Overview
The production “I Am Carnival” is a powerful, stirring musical, that is a testament to what is so inherent in us, that the Carnival phenomenon has become a natural force that permeates our everyday lives.
The overall idea is that the spirit of mas, pan, calypso/soca and our rhythms all reside in different places but they converge once every year to create the spectacle and wonder that is Carnival. The ‘pregnant’ Carnival spirit calls the various elements together so that the unique Trinidad and Tobago experience is ‘birthed’ once a year.
The audience is taken through a journey of awareness of what already exists within us - an acknowledgment of our passion and creativity forged through our colourful history. The depiction will leave the audience with many “Ah Ha” moments and will bring them to a focal point where they feel embolden and feel a strong conviction and personal affirmation to declare beyond the stage production – that we are all intertwined in the larger than life production that is the ‘greatest show on earth’ - because they are Carnival
The show will feature the likes of David Rudder, Rikki Jai, Sugar Aloes and Super Blue, as well as top steelbands of yester-year and today.
