Alegria: Brouhaha visits Isle of Wight New Carnvial Company

By Brouhaha on January 23, 2018 in News, projects

The New Carnival Company, based down south in the Isle of Wight, is playing host this month to a project which could change the face of integrated and disability-led carnival in the UK.

This scheme has prompted two other professional carnival organisations, Emergency Exit Arts from London and ourselves “Brouhaha International”  to send their creative teams down to the Island to join the programme. We have sent our team that consist of Darcy, Mandy, Megan and Holly. (Pictured below)

This programme is backed by Unlimited, a British Council and Arts Council England funding scheme which supports the development of disabled artists across the country. Their project, called ALEGRIA, is to devise and co-produce a showcase piece of carnival performance, samba style, which will tour nationally and internationally throughout the summer. The showpiece will be premiered on the Island at the New Carnival Company’s Mardi Gras parade on June 30th.
