A Walk into the Night by Marlon Griffith


Carnival artist Marlon Griffith (Born in Trinidad Tobago, 1976) has developed a version of his A Walk into the Night specifically for Art Dubai. Taking the aesthetics of Trinidadian carnivals and West African shadow puppets as a starting point, the piece stages both a large-scale celebratory procession and a magical play of light and shadow that will enact several narratives associated with the recent history of Dubai. The performance is a collaboration with the Filipino community in Dubai, involving 150 performers as well as music composed by a local musician, and will travel through the fair with visitors invited to join in.

Time: 7:30-8:30pm

Location: Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre, Art Dubai
