The Cypher Art Collective of Grenada explores a cultural ritual of Carriacou, the Shakespeare Mas. Players dressed in colourful costumes recite passages from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to each other in the open-air theatre of the road. Generations have practiced this, with influences from West Africa, England, France, and Scotland. This is not an anthropological study, but a starting point for the imagination of the artists. Film, paintings, installations make up the multifaceted display, also focusing on the “right to opacity” – claimed by Édouard Glissant and connected to the right to human and cultural diversity, multilingualism and multiethnicity – and the theme of journey, meant as encounter and rediscovery.
