STAGE GARDEN RUMBA
Where ART Meets GREEN
GRATIS Música, teatro, danza, poesía y activismo—¡con los nuestros y para los nuestros!
FREE Music, theater, dance, poetry and activism—with our people and for our our people!
WHERE: At Rincón Criollo / Casita de Chema on the corner of 157th Street and Brook Avenue, South Bronx.
WHAT: It’s an invitation for you and your family to experience some of our boroughs green and underutilized spaces in the company of creative and fearless agents of change! It’s a chance to inspire and get inspired! To kick things off, we showcase short new works by some of your favorite artists in dialogue with local activists. Together we ask, What Makes Our South Bronx Boogie?
FEATURING: Milteri Tucker + Bombazo Dance Company, Mazarte Dance Company, Flaco Navaja, Vejigantes de Pregones, Gabriel Hernández, The Mona Passage, María Aponte, Paula Ramírez, Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán, Edwin Torres, Lilian Jiménez, Marco Saavedra, Benjamin Ramos, María D. Vives, Vamir DJ Music, and more! The afternoon will culminate with Bomba/Plena à la carte: “An open call-to-action where practitioners of the Puerto Rican folk musical art form gather to play in unison independent of their formal band affiliations, usually as a collective homage to someone they mutually respect, or as a sign of solidarity to the genre itself.”
STAGE GARDEN RUMBA is presented in proud partnership with We Stay/Nos Quedamos.
This FREE arts program is made possible, in part, thanks to the Lincoln Center Cultural Innovation Fund, New York Regional Economic Development Councils, and Con Edison.
