Cunamacué (Contemporary Afro-Peruvian Dance) • Artistic Director: Carmen Roman • www.cunamacue.
SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 2023 AT 7 PM – 9 PM
Huellas – Afro-Peruvian Dance Theater
2773 24th Street, San Francisco, CA 94110
Huellas is an Afro-Peruvian dance theater performance inspired by the ancestral dance Son de los Diablos.
We will share a story of decolonization, resistance and of connecting to ancestral memory.
Huellas centers around Afro-Peruvian rhythms and dances to bring visibility to the African Diaspora in Latinx communities.
Our project highlights the importance, history, existence, and cultural contributions of people of African ancestry in Peru as a way to reclaim and remember a history that is often invisibilized.
Co-created and performed by Carmen Roman and Pierr Padilla Vasquez
Musicians: Kyla Danysh, Holly Shogbesan and Randella Jones
Sound tech: Hatuey Hernandez
