Jouvert is the annual start to the West Indies Day Parade in Brooklyn. It steps off at 12am in Central Brooklyn. My focus was to follow a quasi religious character called the Jab Jab whose name comes from the word Devil in French. People love playing the Jab Jab. As the Jab Jab you have power- to take over the streets, be sexy, to do what you want without any interference from police. The Jab Jab is an important part of African Diasporan street theater giving people a release from their every day lives and allowing them to rewrite a cruel piece of Caribbean history.
