Danza Orgánica

Uplifting marginalized voices for social justice, racial equity, and decolonization through artists who create and perform new work that cuts across boundaries.

Danza Orgánica (DO), based in Roxbury, is a company of dancers and multidisciplinary artists who give voice to issues of social justice, racial equity, decolonization, and displacement in the creation and performance of new work. Connecting a network of artists between Boston and Borikén (Puerto Rico) and through their Dance for Social Justice© program, DO works with community members to find and express their authentic voice and to give platform to their concerns. In addition, through their "We Create" Festival Fellowship, the organization provides residencies for a wide spectrum of artists – from community-based beginning artists exploring their emerging social practice to internationally acclaimed established working artists – to create new work with social justice themes that cut across boundaries. Founded and led by dancer/educator Mar Parrilla, DO is making strides to establish itself as a consistent presence that uplifts marginalized voices.
