Jouvay! An Ole Mas Carnival Parade
July 29, 2011
Jouvay is an ole mas spectacle where the traditional Trinidad and Tobago carnival characters come alive to the rhythms of drums and steel pan worn around their necks. Join Theatre Archipelago, directed by Rhoma Spencer, Tobago Speech Band characters (Keisha Jack and Dr. Verleen Bobb-Lewis), a pack of blue devils, a Midnight Robber, a Tobago Speech Band, Paper Doll, and an interactive mud band as they roam the Ole Yard of Harbourfront Centre, parading the grounds accompanied by steel pan. Starting from the Redpath Stage, mask-wearing characters will display ole mas placards, stopping to re-enact them as they move along, playing their portrayals to spectators with satirical parody, some spoken word, dance and buffoonery.
