Yay for Yemayo

Havana-born, Montreal-based Julio Hong's Yemayo is an exploration of spirituality and sexuality, gender and genre, for four male dancers. Fusing a potently energetic mix of dance styles (from classical ballet to Afro-Caribbean folk dance) with a pulsatingly eclectic musical score, it was just the sort of jolt my DOTE festival experience has needed for these lazy summer evenings belatedly upon us.

Here's a link to an excerpt from the piece.
