Celebrating International Women's Day in a new way
A new celebration has begun for International Women's Day in Trinidad and Tobago to be observed on March 8.
Local actress Cecilia Salazar will this year host "When Women Roar", the first installment of what she said is to become an annual "festival".
A slew of well-known and emerging women performers, poets and dancers will form the show, exploring topics ranging from corruption to abuse.
"We are trying to keep it local," Salazar said.
Among those slated to perform are activist and former government minister, Verna St Rose Greaves and film-maker Judith Laird, who is behind the local film The Alarm Rings Softly, shot in Tobago.
Salazar herself will perform from her play, Miss Miles, and will orate that part of the play where historic female figure Gene Miles talks about corruption in Trinidad and Tobago.
The show is being held at the Little Carib Theatre, Woodbrook on International Women's Day, March 8 and begins at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $150.00.
