The Errol Barrow Centre – Mecca for Barbadian Literary Community? You have 28 Mar. to 6 Apr. to judge
Prince claimed he could do it in a day, Fox say they do it in one minute and 20 seconds and Jules Verne thought it was phenomenal to it less than three months – the Cave Hill Campus’ Errol Barrow Centre takes a neat and stately ten days…
…to circumnavigate this third ball of dirt from the big star out there so!
For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide
When the Rainbow Is Enuf
Friday 28th, Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th March, 2008
For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf is Ntozake Shange?s dramatic masterpiece. Long acclaimed as a classic of world theatre, it uses poetry, music, dance, myth and ritual to choreograph the bliss and blisters that women all over the world go through in their search for love, self-fulfillment and happiness. This particular production, as directed by Esiaba Irobi, Visiting Professor of International Theatre from the USA, focuses specifically on the pain, sorrow and joy that Barbadian women go through as they make the transition from girlhood to womanhood. Their frustration to find worthy husbands through love. Watching the play can change your love life. Its sassiness can also change your sex life. It addresses the politics of gender and identity that love and desire provoke in the Caribbean and the rest of the African Diaspora. Don?t miss it.
