They followed their dreams in search of a better life. Little did they know the mountain that awaited them.

Join Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance for Mi Tierra Boricua, a refreshing blend of fun and adventure that brings oral history to life through theater, traditional music and dance. Written in English, Spanish, and Taino, this drama tells the story of a mountain tobacco community in the 1940s and the adventures they face as they leave the mountains of Puerto Rico in search of a better life. Featuring the poetry of Julia de Burgos, this drama will inspire you to consider your own journey.

Our 13th original production, Mi Tierra Boricua, was written by Tekina-eiru Maynard with the support of community elders in Puerto Rico including Jesus Reyes and others from Tekina-eiru's pueblo Taino who shared oral history and memories of the mountains of Boriken from days gone by. Thank you to Zulmarie Alverio for sharing poetry and insights on the world that Julia de Burgos described. Last but not least, special thanks to actor Luis Olmeda for his mentorship in script writing.
