Danza Organica presents Âs Nupumukômun (We Still Dance), a multimedia performance highlighting stories of the Aquinnah Wampanoag people, utilizing dance, music, and storytelling. This free performance takes place Saturday, June 29 at 7 p.m. at Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s Tower Auditorium, 621 Huntington Avenue, Boston. Reservations are recommended, and they can be made at

The event is supported by The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, Equity and Inclusion Cabinet, Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, and Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Âs Nupumukômun explores what it means to be Native today by highlighting traditional and contemporary stories of the Aquinnah Wampanoag People. The piece, which premiered in the fall of 2022 on Martha’s Vineyard, is the result of a years-long partnership between the Boston-based Danza Organica and nine intergenerational Aquinnah Wampanoag collaborators. It began in a residency at The Yard, a renowned arts center on the island that provides space and funding for new works. This will be the Boston premiere.

Danza Organica is a contemporary dance theater company founded in 2007 by Afro-Puerto Rican artist/choreographer Mar Parrilla. Their work is centered around equity, social justice, and decolonization. With dancers from Borikén (so-called Puerto Rico), Mexico, República Dominicana, and España, DO brings forth a multiplicity of experiences with the common themes of migration, antiracism, and decolonization, towards the embodiment of a liberated future.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The program is 75 minutes and is suitable for all ages.
