Rigidigidim De Bamba De: Ruptured Calypso is an evening-length multidisciplinary dance theatre project on the nature of calypso dancing as an agent of Afro-Anglo Caribbean identity across geographical, national and aesthetic borders. A meditation on “rupture” as a defining feature of calypso performance, Rigidigidim places performers from the Caribbean diaspora in positions between real and imagined borders that invite them to navigate their Caribbeanness via calypso music, dance and the spoken word.
In Rigidigidim, collaborators in film, music, and design enhance the commitment to non-linear storytelling and expressive performance through choreographic repetition and the overlapping of language and theatrical elements that have become a signature style.
