Sypnosis

The original choreography for "Barrer/let's sweep" was a duet inspired by Afro-Peruvian artist Victoria Santa Cruz's song "Hay que barrer" which talks about sweeping injustices and racism from the world. During the shelter in place order, dancers from Cunamacué dance company set-out to recreate the original choreography using their cell phones, and filming from home.
