Abstract

An evening-length multidisciplinary dance theatre project that drifts in and out of the carnival context using calypso dancing as an agent of Afro-Caribbean identity across geographical, national, and aesthetic borders. Rigidigidim’s international cast of artists layer myth, herstory, the spoken word, and calypso dancing to deliver calypso’s subversive truth telling, innuendo, and rawness to raucous and downright unrespectable levels.
