The Celebration Time Calypso Circus is a combination of Celebration Time and newcomers Ragga Soca Superstars
Production Manager of the Calypso Circus Kimtara Clarke during a media launch yesterday said , the management has sought to do more, to bring a new element to the Crop Over season with the blending of culture, a blend of the creative industries, which they strongly believe could be exported.
“We have sought to do this through the merging of dance, acrobatics, drama, and of course the showcasing of our talent during the culture of this major festival, Crop-Over. It was our vision with this merging of so many acts of varying talents, that the circus theme would be ideal," she said
With Bacchanal Time tent absent this year, Clarke who is also the Tent Manager for Celebration Time said, when they were approached about taking over Celebration Time, there were many persons wanting to get into tents.
with this in mind she said the decision was made to start a new tent, which is Ragga Soca Superstars, which will primarily focus on ragga soca and party songs. There will be no Pic-O-De-Crop in that tent.
The Celebration Time Calypso Circus is being managed by PK Event and Media, the company co-owned by Clarke and her husband, Paul.
Yesterday's media launch was held at the Caribbean Media Corporation on Harbour Road and brought together the media, some cast members and sponsors.
