Âs Nupumukômun (We Still Dance) is a theatrical composition created in close collaboration between Danza Orgánica and members of the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe. Adhering to Indigenous storytelling, dance, song, and installation, Âs Nupumukômun explores what it means to be Native today by highlighting traditional and contemporary stories of the Aquinnah Wampanoag People. This collaboration, which started in Winter 2018, was made possible through a partnership between the Aquinnah Cultural Center, The Yard, and Danza Orgánica.

About Danza Orgánica
Founded in 2007 by Taíno Afroboricua artist Mar Parrilla, Danza Orgánica is a Boston-based dance theater company whose work is centered around equity, social justice, and decolonization. With dancers from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Spain, Danza Orgánica brings forth a multiplicity of experiences with the common themes of migration, decolonization, and the embodiment of a liberated future. The company’s programming includes performance, education (Dance for Social Justice™), and the annual We Create Festival. Members of Danza Orgánica “honor our right to express our BIPOC experience, joyfully reimagine ourselves in liberated BIPOC bodies, and leave a legacy that sheds light upon an untold side of history.” This year, Danza Orgánica celebrates its 16th anniversary, and 10 years of the We Create Festival.
