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.
Turn It Up! - is a powerful celebration of our diversity, heritage and the sexuality that defines and exist within our Latinx/LGBTQ+ communities. So get ready to be amazed by these diverse group of performers appearance alongside Carlos. It will be a journey of authentic bliss in the hopes of a greater tomorrow for all of us.
