We are Caribbean in limbo. Island people suspended in place. 
We are far from home but giving birth to a culture of 'free up yuh' self'. An experience compelling you to explore the distance between here and there through the lens of identity, space, place and sound.

With a backdrop of the annual West Indian Day celebrations we are wading in the waters of freedom in a world of Black Survival. We looking at Carnival to deligitmize physical restrictions on our bodies, we looking at Masquerade to show us how to take the streets and shut everything down with a sweet wine and complete ecstatic abandon. We looking at wining to be free from these bodies and we drawing on a lineage of economic emancipation.

Out of this we producing a joyful noise, a soundtrack for our freedom and a beauty so captivating we want to see it again every year...

This is a Free Up Yuh' self Experience. This is a Culture of Liberation. This is Fête Forward.
