Welcome to the Our Caribbean Spirit video platform as we continue our talks with the St.Lucia Folklore Association. Watch the interview as they inform us about St.Lucian Dance Culture in Brooklyn and what the Caribbean spirit means to them.
ABOUT THE OUR CARIBBEAN SPIRIT PROJECT
The signature piece for this year’s New Traditions (dance) Festival is ‘Our Caribbean Spirit’ which will engage with the various Caribbean Dance forms present throughout Brooklyn and NYC by connecting with cultural groups and organizations. The hope is to highlight the multiple ways Caribbean-ness is expressed throughout the Caribbean Diaspora, through a published interview series, video documentation and a collaborative dance process, and to continue the conversation through live performance at the New Traditions Festival 2017, June 16-18.
