Presented in collaboration with HARLEM WEEK

NYC-based Afro-Cuban dance company, Oyu Oro, fuses traditional and unconventional dance forms that strive to connect African diasporic and Hispanic cultures. Their choreography pays tribute to African lineages derived from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, Arara, and Dahomean cultures of West Africa and Haiti. Founded by Danys “La Mora” Perez, the 2019 Dance/USA Doris Duke Fellow, Oyo Oro has performed at both national and international venues, including Teatro Mella in Havana, Harlem Havana Festival, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, and Jacob’s Pillow. Presented in collaboration with Harlem Week, this event will celebrate the rich African-American and Hispanic heritage of New York City.
