A theatre event which explores the history of the colonisation of the Caribbean islands and its consequences through music, mime and dance.

The Ministry of Deliverance
A filmed service at The Pentecostal Church of God at the Angel, Islington - incantation, possession of the spirit, and the ecstatic experience of words and music that are at the roots of Caribbean expression.

Going to Sunday School
A filmed visit to 'The Coleherne' - a pub in Earls Court which every Sunday lunchtime turns Caribbean. West Indians from all over London come to meet socially and listen to the Kaiso (Calypso) music of Russell Henderson and his band and other musicians who drop in. (Radio Times People: page 5)

A black man meets a white woman at a party in liberal London.
'I'm going to colonise her just like a little island, the way they colonised mine, with tax collectors, lying history books and rapist plantation owners, what could be more fitting... '
