Join us for a celebration of family, friends and our folk traditions!
Whether you call it Creole, Dialect, Island Talk, Native Language or Patois… this celebration of de way we talk harkens back to such folk performance gatherings as Tea Meetings, Best Village Shows, Penny Concerts and Nine Night, in a program that gives Caribbean and non-Caribbean families alike, an opportunity to explore traditions that have nurtured Caribbean families for generations.
Coming as it does on the Columbus Day weekend, Dialectics – Friend & Family looks at the clash of cultures that has given birth to a uniquely, and evolving, Caribbean experience.
