Etienne Charles: Carnival: The Sound of a People

With his current show Carnival: The Sound of a People, Charles brings the street energy of Trinidad's magical ritual to the stage. He teleports the audience to his homeland with vivid multimedia elements accompanying the music. At the root of each composition is a fascinating story and a pulsating groove sure to get you up and dancing. A firm believer in music and performance as a tool for provoking thought and dialogue, Charles’ themes speak to the status quo while drawing parallels to history.
