"Callaloo: A Jazz Folktale" is a Caribbean jazz play written by Marjuan Canady. Underscored by Etienne Charles' "Folklore" album, a young boy travels to the islands of Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies where his grandmother teaches him a lesson about balance in life. On these mystical Caribbean islands, dreams, magic and reality fuse together as the young boy becomes entrapped by mythical characters: Soucouyant, Dwen, La Diablesse, Papa Bois, Lagahoo and Mama D'lo. He must fight his way out of this haunting paradise to make it home alive.
Event begins at 7:00PM
