DIG Online: Project X | Lovey and Boy: A Carnival Odyssey
Carnival is a time when you can be anyone -from a mighty warrior to a mythical butterfly, or even a cunning trickster!
Lovey and Boy are best friends, who love to dance, and are excited for carnival time. Boy is discovering more about who she is. With the support of Lovey they embark on a journey learning more about their heritage and about carnival.
This tale of Carnival is a celebration of Caribbean heritage and identity asking: “Who are we? What is our history? And how do we move through the world?”
A playful story of self-discovery, this dance film invites you to join Lovey and Boy on their journey, meeting tricksters and forest spirits along the way.
