“We Have Iré.”

On the eve of the premiere of the theater work “We Have Iré,” a group of accomplished Afro-Cuban artists tell their stories of overcoming the challenges of immigration and finding success in the US through hard work and “iré,” the Lucumi word for being blessed with positive energy. Through dance, music, and theater, the artists celebrate being Black, immigrant, and bilingual. The theater play is based in dramatic real-life experiences.
