Must Read

Borimix, a celebration of Puerto Rican heritage, arts and culture, returns to The Clemente at Teatro Sea this November, in celebration of Puerto Rican Heritage Month. The festival features Puerto Rican artists in theater, dance, music and the visual arts. This year’s festival honors guest country Venezuela and its intersection with Puerto Rican identity, artistic cultural heritage, and common plight of forced migration.

They write: “Kicking off on November 4th with the community awards ceremony honoring contributions to the city, and the opening of the exhibit See You in Florida : a Vene-Rican Odyssey,  the evening will be capped with dancing to the live music of Alvaro Benavides Group.  As usual, the month-long festival will feature a variety of performance events, workshops, and panels throughout November with multiple partners and a program that highlights both Puerto Rican and Venezuelan talent.

BORIMIX: Puerto Rico Fest was established in 2005 to celebrate Puerto Rican Heritage Month by showcasing great Puerto Rican art in a range of mediums. Initially held exclusively at The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center in the Lower East Side, the festival expanded in 2007 to include multiple venues around the city. In 2007 the BORIMIX Award was inaugurated, which recognizes individuals who have contributed to, supported, and advocated for Puerto Rican /Latinx arts in New York City”
