Sankofa Danzafro, The City of Others
With live music!
Founded by Rafael Palacios in 1997, Sankofa Danzafro is an exciting company from Colombia, the country with the second largest Afro-descent population found in Latin America. Sankofa means, “to return to the root,” an African philosophy that proposes that the past is a keyhole through which to view the present, and to consider the future–a spirit that guides the work of this Afro-Colombian dance company. The company’s The City of Others, examines issues of wealth, gender, sexual orientation, and lack of opportunity affecting minority communities in Colombia, and showcases powerful Afro-Colombian and Afro-contemporary dance with live drumming and singing.
Seating for this engagement is limited. This engagement is not eligible for group discounts.
Following the performances Sankofa Danzafro, will teach two free intergenerational dance workshops on November 4, 2018 at the Veronica Robles Center in East Boston.
