But first, the Gods Of War and Steel theatre production August 3rd.
If you have had your ears to the theatre ground you would have heard the rhythm of Black Ogun marching to the beat of their own drum. This trio of young male actors, Serge Phillips, Tabari St. Ville and Noel Williams have been performing under the direction and management of Matthew Murrell for the last few years. Since wowing audiences at Poetry Lime and being guests at events hosted by Sheena Rose, Black Ogun has graced stages as big as Tallawah in Jamaica and reaping awards.
Up next, the Olympics of Caribbean culture, Carifesta XIV in Trinidad. And to prepare for this next epic experience, Matthew and the young men are producing the theatre production Black Ogun: Gods of War and Steel, Saturday August 3rd at the Cove Nightclub in St. Lawrence Gap. Showtime is 4pm with a $20 donation.
Also performing will be Adrian Green, Adrian Clarke, Damani Re, Romario Cottoy, Jamal Dawe, Kemal Marshall, Lamarr Coward and MC is Nala the $2 Philosopher.
In this quick interview with the boys we explore the importance of why it is necessary to pay more attention and support our young black males and how challenging it is producing a play like this in the climax of the Crop Over season. Have a watch, check out Black Ogun and try and come out to the show Saturday August 3rd!
