Fans are in for a treat as the Annual Talk Tent opens its doors at Queen’s Hall,. St. Anns, from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March 2019. Three days of top quality humour, storytelling, spoken word, social commentary and thought-provoking entertainment.
First produced by Paul Keens-Douglas in 1983 and the longest running Talk Show in Trinidad & Tobago, the Talk Tent has now become a popular and highly anticipated post-carnival event. It attracts a wide cross-section of local talk enthusiasts and many a visitor seeking something different and relevant. With its motto “Where Talk is Art” and its focus on highlighting the various aspects of the oral traditions, it gives them exactly that.
Hosted by singing MC David Bereaux and featuring seasoned performers such as Miguel Browne, Farida Chapman, Felix Edinborough, Avion Crooks and Short Pants, all teachers and educators, patrons can look forward to the presentation of material that is not only entertaining but educational.
Each year, the Tent Tent features well-known and up-and-coming artists as special guests. This year’s audience will enjoy the lyrics of popular spoken-word poet, Alexandra Stewart.
An unsponsored show, the Talk Tent depends on the support of its fans, supporters and those who recognize the importance of its role in preserving this genre of Caribbean culture.
Books, CD’s and DVD’s of the various artistes will also be available at special show prices.
