Altars Live (Interdisciplinary, 2021)

ALTARS Live is an interdisciplinary performance series which spotlights extraordinary BIPOC artists in Boston, curated and produced by Mariona Lloreta. The first installment features Grammy-nominated saxophonist Phillip Young; Boston's Youth Poet Laureate Alondra Bobadilla; Krump champion and Season 6 winner of "So You Think You Can Dance” Russell Fergusson; Boston Ballet dancer and US Presidential Scholar in the Arts My'Kal Stromile and Brazilian dance ensemble SambaViva

With an aim to battle the “danger of a single story,” we strive for ALTARS Live to contribute a nuanced, compelling and fresh perspective to the conversation on racial justice in Boston and in the United States as a whole, and to serve as a collective healing exercise as we reimagine the future while acknowledging and honoring the past.
