Trinidad & Tobago


The National Theatre Arts Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NTAC)

The National Theatre Arts Company was established in 2009. Its vision – to develop the theatrical ethos of Trinidad and Tobago. It inspires industry professionals and explores indigenous theatre.  Led by Artistic Director Belinda Barnes, NTAC players perform theatrical classics as well as the works of the country’s celebrated playwrights.

Since 2014, NTAC has staged 'Calabash Alley' by Freddie Kissoon, 'Berlin on a Donkey' created by Ralph Campbell, 'Two Choices' by Victor Questel and 'Play Mas' by Mustapha Matura. Respected Trinidad playwright Errol Hill said: “I'm pleased today to see that many of our reputed playwrights are using the folk forms in many different ways.”

According to Artistic Director Barnes: “Through these productions, NTAC welcomes the stranger whom we have ignored for too long. We are now peeling our own images from the mirror, to feast, with elation, on our lives, as the late, great playwright Derek Walcott advised in his poetry.”

Marvin Dowdridge, NTAC actor, opines: “I can only echo what the Russian playwright Meyerhold would have said and frame his words in our context: we, as actors and servants of the stage, are truly burning with the spirit of our times to transform our very existence in these islands. Onward to Carifesta 2017!”
