 "From Chris Rivera, the writter who brought you Gender of Attraction, Our Own Odyssey, and Modern Day Martyrdom to FUERZAfest NY, comes a new play years in the making. In 2020, only one scene of Back to You was featured the first QueerantineFuerza. Now the full story is ready to be told. Rivera, winner of FUERZAfest’s Best Supporting actor for his role in Our Own Odyssey, is joined by frequent collaborator and FUERZAfest darling, Joe Montoya in this intimate and daring new work."

On Saturday, May 21 - we completed the seventh edition of FUERZAfest with a BANG, as we welcomed dancer/choreographer Carlos Falú and his troupe who delivered a spellbinding and dexterous choreography that left us wanting more. What a privilege to be part of his first production as curator! It was amazing to have this amazing group of artists lighting up the FUERZAfest stage. Thank you! - Rafael Cañals, Cristal del Mar López, Iñigo Echavarría Taracena, Carlos Felú, Colby Marie Lewis, Javier "Javi" Padilla, Caleb Patterson, Oscar Antonio Rodríguez and César Segovia.
