At the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, A Season at Fiona’s Theatre is back with “Riddim n Tingum” by Saucy Expressions, presenting a dynamic night of music, poetry and art celebrating the [national exhibition] “NE9: The Fruit and The Seed.” The event takes place tonight, Friday, March 8, from 8:00-11:00pm. The event is free and open to the public. As the announcement insists, “Come out and celebrate all tings Bahamian, all tings tru-tru, all tings sperrit and all tings you.”
Finding inspiration in spirituality, sexuality, psychology and fodder from current social issues, culture, politics and the environment, the NAGB welcomes a cohort of brilliant performers, poets, musicians and artists to celebrate a night of sperrit, freedom and energetic healing through art and communal gathering.
We will hear words from Martysta Turnquest, Ivanna Gaitor, Yasmin Glinton, Ian Taylor, Tanicia Pratt, Pryia Russell-Ellis, Bey Chaino, Kacey Ferguson, Cherese Pratt featuring Jason Evans and Colene Clarke, with dynamic chants by Qpid and Bodine and drumming with Ubuntu. The evening’s mood will be set with a live animation by Jason Evans and caricature drawings by Renbert Mortimer.
Complementing the creative energies, we rise the “wybe” with delicious fare, libations and artisanal speciality items from Conch ‘n’ Tingz, GreenCity Organics, The New Duff, Kowsher, Express Yourself, Springbok and Conchscious Crown. “Riddim n Tingum” is free and open to the public. The programme is appropriate for all ages and family friendly.
