‘Kambule', the Eintou Springer play which documents the 1881 Port of Spain riots that saved the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, opens on the New York stage this September for Labour Day. The presentation is being made possible through the West Indian American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA).
The WIADCA holds Annual Labour Day Concerts, Carnival and Parade from September 2, 2010 to September 6, 2010. This year the organisation celebrates forty-two years of New York's biggest Carnival.
The contingent from Trinidad and Tobago will include the main actors from the local production of Kambule. Idakeda will collaborate with a number of organisations in New York to ensure a successful production, which will see a combination of actors, dancers and drummers from Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the WIADCA for the unstinting support they have provided to us in making this a reality. We are also deeply appreciative of the support from the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism, the Ministry of Tourism, the Tourism Development Company, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Caribbean Airlines.
