Oyu Oro Afro Cuban Experimental Dance Ensemble
July 28, 2023

Oyu Oro is a New York City-based Afro-Cuban dance company founded by the 2019 Dance/USA Doris Duke Fellow Danys “La Mora” Pérez, who is originally from Santiago de Cuba. The company is committed to building bridges among African diaspora and Hispanic cultures, as well as between the traditional and unconventional dance forms of the modern age, while preserving Afro-Cuban culture through dance, song, and music. Oyu Oro’s traditional repertoire pays tribute to African lineages derived from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, Arara, and Dahomean cultures of West Africa and Haiti. These popular dance choreographies celebrate the national Cuban heritage. Oyu Oro has performed at national and international cultural festivals, aspiring to create works that audiences of all ages can enjoy, and that multicultural educators can bring into their classrooms and their work, all in service of developing “art among people.”
