Yemaya and The Flood

Yemaya and The Flood

Dance Afrikana presents Yemaya and the Flood, a piece on home(s), ancestral memory, and motherhood. Drawing inspiration from the Yoruba orisha Yemaya, it explores water and its many manifestations–libation, pouring, leaking, birth, flooding, and the ocean. This performance is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Wild Life: Elizabeth Murray & Jessi Reaves and as an extended Black History Month program.
