Filmed on the stage of the Harold Pinter Theatre, J'Ouvert originated at Theatre 503 in a co-production with Bad Breed and Tobi Kyeremateng.
A timely echo of Caribbean resistance across centuries, J’Ouvert is a joyful and fearless story of two best friends, battling to preserve tradition in a society where women’s bodies are frequently under threat.
2017. Carnival is here. The streets of Notting Hill are alive with history and amidst the soca, sequins and endless feathers, Jade and Nadine are fighting for space in a world that should be theirs.
