Resident Director
Louis is a veteran theatre director with over fifty directed works to his credit. He is currently the Head of Department and a Lecturer and Coordinator of Theatre Arts Programme at the Department of Creative and Festival Arts at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad. Sing De Chorus (1991) marked his debut in the professional area of directing and he had the distinct pleasure of directing the rest of Rawle Gibbons’ trilogy: Ah Wanna Fall (1992) and Ten to One (1993).

Marva Newton

Resident Musical Director
Marva's critical involvement in music, theatre and the Arts began in 1992 when she was made band guitarist and coordinator for Rawle Gibbons’ ‘Ah Wanna Fall’ – the second in the playwright’s ground-breaking calypso drama trilogy. For a self-described calypso aficionado, this opportunity was like a dream come true! Since then, Marva has worked extensively in music and theatre, in key performance and coordinating roles. She was music director and guitarist for ‘Sing De Chorus’ which played to enthusiastic audiences during Calypso History Month 2018 and Carnival 2019. Known for her role as accompanying guitarist with an authentic, flavourful strum, Marva sometimes takes the lead when she performs with her own ensemble, ‘Kairi Kaiso’. Calypso, for Marva, is both entertainment and “living folklore” which tells our rich stories in song. As a result, she hopes to keep spreading positive vibrations through the music for as long as she can.
