For more information:Glenn’s mission was to provide an inexpensive alternative to the people, Glenn and his newly Glenn Carvalho is doing what he loves most, bringing mas again for a second year after a nineteen year retirement upon having the fire of creativity rekindled within him by both his daughter and granddaughter. After testing the waters so to speak with his Aloha 2010 presentation, in which formed team have worked long and hard to develop a presentation that will certainly be a visual feast to satisfy the hunger for something new in Trinidad carnival. Glenn also intends to incorporate a rebirth of pageantry to mas, which seems to have escaped most bands in recent years in their presentations. What better theme to have a “rebirth” than that of ancient Egypt, who’s Nile River would flood annually and deposit rich silt to the lands to provide for fertile crop growth. This rebirth of the land is what allowed a civilization to flourish in a desert like environment. This concept of rebirth was celebrated by its people and is reflected by its gods and the passage to the afterlife. Our team has worked hard to incorporate these aspects of ancient Egyptian culture into our historic mas presentation. We have narrowed down the presentation into the following twelve sections;1. Court of Cleopatra2. Divinity of Hatshepsut3. Dreams of Nefertiti4. Feather of Maat5. Jewels of the Nile6. Keepers of the Deity’s7. Order of the Scarab8. Majesty of the God’s:• Female Bastet- Portrayed as the Cat• Female Hathor- Portrayed as the Snake• Female Mut- Portrayed as the Vulture• Male Ra- Portrayed as the Hawk• Male Anubis- Portrayed as the Jackal• Male Thoth- Portrayed as the Ibis9. Passage to the After Life10. Pharaohs Concubine (All Female)11. Rebirth of the Lotus12. Winged Cobras
This presentation is going to be unique in many ways. There are many design aspects that have certainly not been seen in carnival presentations. You will see ancient Egypt portrayed in a way that you wouldn’t expect to see, with many traditional elements but also combined with abstract concepts. Although the design of the costumes were very thoroughly thought out and designed, the headpieces are the focal point throughout the presentation. We have adopted an “all or nothing” concept to our presentation, meaning that all costumes are of a frontline or individual caliber, with no excessive options to complicate things. As prototypes are in full production, we expect to have everything in order to launch in late October.
