Trinidad & Tobago Village: London Olympics
The Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn has cancelled all stage productions during the Olympics and instead welcomes the Trinidad & Tobago National Olympic Committee for the duration of the Games. For five weeks this summer, the Tricycle Theatre will become Trinidad & Tobago Village, showcasing all aspects of Trinidad & Tobago culture with the national delegation having carte blanche in all programming at the theatre, cinema and gallery. A presentation of static and interactive exhibits will explore many key cultural elements of Trinidad & Tobago including cuisine, art, craft and photography, fashion, carnival displays, music (including steel pan), literature, film, trade and industry and tourism. The month-long Trinidad & Tobago Village will culminate in a performance of the acclaimed play Mass Carib (by Felix Cross, Artistic Director of Nitro) on 25th August to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the twin island Republic's gaining independence. The diverse programme will be a mixture of free and ticketed events.
