About the Show:

Meet Winston, a young boy who gets lost in a dream where mythical Caribbean characters roam freely.  Mixing Trinidad and Tobago’s rich Folklore culture with the sweet sounds of jazz emanating from Etienne Charles’ jazz masterpiece Folklore, Callaloo promises to bring you the very best Trinidadian storytelling has to offer.  Follow Winston through his dream as he encounters Papa Bois, Soucoyant, La Diablesse, Lagahoo and the Dwens.  Sway to the rhythm of the jazz trumpet as two actors in carnival costumes transport you to a world you’ve never yet experienced.  Here, Calalloo brings carnival to you.
