‘J’OUVERT’ is a new collaborative work between Naarm-based artist Makeda, and the AM Trio - including dancer/artist Ece Yavuz, renowned Trinidad born steel-pan player Alvin Rostant and musician R.

The performance explores the social legacies of Afro-indo Trinidad, and its unique relationship toward resistance with an ode to the country’s annual 3AM commemoration of slave abolition (where this work takes its namesake). ‘J’Ouvert’ unpacks several themes – including the tumultuous history of the steel-pan drum, the relationship between healing and embodiment, and Trinidad’s the theatre of the streets.
