Sunday Market Network sat down with four stalwarts in the wire bending community Art Brown, Roger Hicks, Ernesto Jardine and Robert Miller who have been in the business for years and spoke about their views on Carnival now and then. Tune into this series where we learn more about the prestigious art form and even get a behind the scenes look as to how parts of your favorite pieces of your Carnival costume are created!
The fighting ground, traditionally known as The Gayelle, serves as the battlefield for opposing warriors who would challenge each other until one fighter is defeated. As such, there is no other location as fitting for the battle that will take place. Today’s modern day Stick Fighters are Traditional Carnival and Capitalism/Elitism.
