Atrium 360°

 

Something Positive brings the music, dance, and street theater of Trinidad's carnival to the Atrium. In their comic theater piece, the troupe presents the traditional masquerade characters of the pre-Lenten carnival in a mock marriage ceremony. The play culminates with cannon sounds signaling the beginning of the celebration, the characters inviting the audience into the parade singing “Jouvay barreyo, pas maittez la main asseyo” while drums and percussion keep the beat.
