at the Chase Latino Cultural Festival
Queens Theatre in the Park
Oyu Oro brings Afro-Cuban folklore and faith to vibrant life through an inseparable trinity of dance, percussion, and song. Join us afterward for an opening night party.
Kicking off the Festival, New York-based masters of music and movement Oyo Oro bring Afro-Cuban folklore and faith to vibrant life through the inseparable trinity of dance, percussion, and song. In their dramatic dance performance “Ceremonial de la Danza,” Oyo Oro fuses Cuba’s Yoruba and Dahomey-descended rituals and Cuban popular music into a celebration of the island’s many-sided African heritage. Join us afterward for a post show party.
In 1997, Queens Theatre in the Park founded the Latino Cultural Festival with the Latin American Cultural Center of Queens to celebrate the contributions of Latin American artists to New York’s cultural life. Queens Theatre saw that a rising number of Latinos were calling Queens home and adopted an artistic vision that is at once local and global. Through the Festival’s performing arts programs, Queens Theatre could better serve the changing community with artistic programs that were relevant and could resonate throughout the community.
