Rotunda Dance Series: Cunamacué
Presented by Dancers’ Group and World Arts West, in partnership with Grants for the Arts and San Francisco City Hall
Cunamacué, in collaboration with Pierr Padilla, will present work inspired by Son de los Diablos, an Afro-Peruvian street masquerade dance that dates back to times of colonization as part of the Spanish attempt to Christianize Africans. This dance is one of the first manifestations of cultural resistance of African descendants in Peru.
The Rotunda Dance Series will continue in 2019 with artists to be announced. The Series brings many of the Bay Area’s most celebrated dance companies to San Francisco City Hall’s rotunda space for free monthly noon-time performances. The Rotunda Dance series is presented by Dancers’ Group and World Arts West in partnership with Grants for the Arts and San Francisco City Hall.
