Bankra Cultural Fest 2023
The Bankra Caribbean Culture Festival features traditional folk forms and experiences from different Caribbean territories. Inherited from the Twi language of Ghana (bonkara), a bankra is a large, woven basket made of indigenous materials in the islands of the Caribbean and is often carried or used as a display for a wide variety of produce, usually colorful and tantalizing to the eyes. This is exactly what this festival replicates: the largesse beauty of the folk cultural represented from each island.

StandPipe is a dramatic work inspired by the artwork of Trinidadian painter David Moore�s work of the same title. Through monologues, songs, dance, poetry and vignettes, we navigate an artist's need to connect to his cultural upbringing to find creative inspiration. Set in rural Jamaica. The audience journeys into the painting to learn the lives of the people represented and explores the themes of community, love, religion, relationships, education, wealth and poverty.
