Puerto Rico was hit by the worst hurricane in over a century. There is currently a humanitarian crisis. Hurricane María left the entire island without electricity, water, and has taken the homes of thousands of Puerto Ricans. The country is completely devastated. The ecological damage is tremendous, and there is a public health crisis.

Currently:

  • there is no electricity or tap water
  • water is contaminated in the entire island (there is a strong need for water filters)
  • there are outbreaks of: leptospirosis, conjunctivitis, and gastrointestinal disorders
  • around 7,000 additional people are living in shelters post Maria

Danza Orgánica (DO), directed by Marsha Parrilla, is a dance theater company that uses movement to generate awareness around social justice concerns. It’s newest work, MELAZA explores de colonial relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States of America. It has also served as a platform to generate awareness around Hurricane Maria, and raise funds towards grassroots organizations.
