Las Mujeronas

A new work-in-progress by Jhoely Triana

Las Mujeronas [loss moo hair OWN us]. We are fierce, confident, trail-blazing women moving through struggles, rebuilding our lives, finding our voices and creating our identities, dreams and passions. This work features Flamenco Latinas in Canada exploring our immigrant identities and connecting to our home cultures through the art form of flamenco. Using flamenco elements, such as the song forms of Ida y Vuelta ([EEda e voo-ELlta] “going and coming”), which embody the intercultural influences of the Americas on flamenco, we explore how migration influences our lives. Las Mujeronas incorporates flamenco dance, poetry, singing and storytelling. At the end, we invite the audience to join us in a fun, follow-the-leader-style rumba flamenca song that becomes a community dance party. Hang out, watch the performance and at the end, you can have some fun too!
