Afro ConTempo Dance Theater (ACDT) presents ALMA EN BOCA, The Afro-Peruvian Story, an elaborated tale of re-invention, social structure and cultural expression that voices itself through the rhythms of the Cajon, live singers and a cast of 20 energetic performers.
Keeping its traditional touch, the showâ€™s creator and ACDTâ€™s founder and director, Marcela Diaz, finds a way to stay true to Peruvian folklore while allowing it to be edged and reformed into modern day dance.
â€œThis project has been in the works for only one year now. But has taken five long years to research,â€ says Marcela Diaz, Artistic Director and Choreographer of the show. She continues by saying, â€œI support the notion that a culture can be expressed through any well researched artistic approach, even if the culture heavily relies on tradition. What better way to share information about a culture than to bring alive its history?!â€
Special Appearance By Grammy Nominated, Peruvian Singer, Eva Ayllon
