Guyana to field 100-strong delegation to CARIFESTA
(Guyana Chronicle) THE 100 Guyanese who form the official Guyana contingent are getting ready to represent this country at the Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) XIV which will be held from August 16 to 25, in Trinidad and Tobago.
Guyana’s Coordinator for CARIFESTA XIV Andrew Tyndall told this newspaper that preparation, particularly within the performing arts is well underway. “We’re looking forward to taking up the group and representing Guyana, and make all of Guyana proud at the festival,” Tyndall said, explaining that it is for this reason much emphasis is being placed on preparing all delegates.
“The major area of preparation would be in the performing arts, which covers dance, music and drama,” Tyndall explained. The rehearsals for the drama, dance and music cohorts, specifically, began weeks ago but the rehearsals for the Guyana Night presentation, which will feature the entire performing arts delegation, began on Sunday, July 14.
“We really look forward to that [Guyana Night] presentation because it is that presentation that looks at the festivals of Guyana and it paints a picture of the Guyanese society from the background of our festivals,” the coordinator said.
