#CARIFESTA2019 – Guyana Night debut wows
(Department of Pubic Information) Just days before the official opening of the Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) XIV, the Guyana contingent debuted their melting-pot performance of ‘One year in a day’ against the backdrop of Stabroek Market
The performance which will be showcased on ‘Guyana Night’ at the festival, accurately captured the Coalition Government’s vision of a cohesive nation. It portrayed all of Guyana’s cultural and religious festivals that define the country’s unique diversity
Speaking with the Department of Public Information (DPI), Director of Culture Tamika Boatswain said that the performance differs somewhat from presentations at previous CARIFESTA festivals, as it combines drama, dance and music in a “colourful, cohesive piece.”
“I think that it [performance] will blow people away especially Guyanese who live in Trinidad. It is a good way of bringing Guyana back to them and evoking memories; the response is always good. We had a good response in Barbados, and this is just a different twist to the Guyana Night. So, we know that we will surprise people,” she explained.
