Como Eres / As You Are
Choreographed by renowned Bomba dancer and cultural activist Milteri Tucker Concepción, this new performance features Puerto Rican actor Cedric Leiba Jr., Dominican dancer Roberto E. Ventura, and members of Bombazo Dance Co. The work takes audiences on a journey of truth, discovery, and comfortability while dancing Bomba puertorriqueña and Afro Caribbean rhythms, presenting the intersections of “traditional” folkloric gender roles and enriching traditional notions with gender fluidity. With a message of Bomba FOR ALL, Como Eres / As You Are embraces and supports the LGBTQ+ members of our community! Q&A with artists following performance.
