Sankofa Danzafro

Mar 4, 2022 - 7:30 PM Orpheum Theater

Showcasing powerful Afro-Colombian and Afro-contemporary dance with live music and singing, Colombian dance troupe Sankofa Danzafro presents “Accommodating Lie,” a full-length work by Rafael Palacios which seeks to dismantle stereotypes and beliefs about and around the black body and what it means to be of African descent.   

In a series of emotional solos and duets, seven Sankofa dancers embody decades of slavery, racism and the “exotic” label western colonizing culture has assigned to black bodies.
