De Mi Corazón

choreographed by Nieya Amezquita

De Mi Corazón premiered in June 2024 as a part of the Southern Theater Partnership Program in Minneapolis, MN. 

De Mi Corazón is a love letter to the black family, specifically black fatherhood, created to explore the complexities and nuanced dynamics in the African American community. Because only through reflection and empathy can we begin to truly appreciate the intricacies of our familial connections and heal from the traumas of the past.
