Yemayo (choreographed by Julio Hong)

An Orisha is a spiritual being interpreted as a manifestation of Olofi. Yemaya is the maternal force of life and creation. But can we find her attributes in a man? This choreography challenges the aspects of maleness that permeate Hispano Canadian culture through contemporary movement, ballet, Cuban folkloric dance, music, religion, and daily rituals.


Le Groupe Herencias produces professional choreographic works and use the arts for education, training and therapeutic intervention for promotion, exchange, and acceptance of cultural heritage. Our team, headed by Farah Fancy, Director and Julio Hong, Artistic Director use art to increase society’s intercultural competency and social capital.
