Celebrando 2004 - The Pirates of Puerto Rico
On June 26-27th, we culiminated our multi-phase Celebrando 2004 project
with an annual season-ending, full-length performance. As always, Celebrando
was a lively performance of traditional dance, music and song featuring our
professional-level company of dancers and musicians and masters from
Puerto Rico. This year's special guest was Paracumbe' direct
from Puerto Rico who brought us Bomba and Plena from Puerto Rico's southern
coast. In the first half of the show, PRFDance dancers and musicians enjoyed
merging with Paracumbe in a celebration of our island's Afro-Puerto Rican
traditions! In the
second half of the show,
Paracumbe's musicians joined PRFDance in our debut of "The Pirates of
Puerto Rico" our original mini-musical about the exciting adventures
This year's Celebrando was two years in the making! We hope you enjoy
these photos of backstage fun
as we got ready for the show, as well as these photos from two years of
research, preparation and planning
with Special Guest Paracumbe'
Lively Performance of Plena!
