Loco Bloco celebrates our 20th year of providing Afro-Latino community arts education and performance. Loco Bloco was founded in the traditions of the Afro-Blocos of Brazil, with a focus on creating music and dance dedicated to cultural activism. Loco Bloco brings together traditional rhythms, movements and aesthetics of the African Diaspora within Latin America and fuses them with contemporary urban styles of music, dance and theater to create high-energy, innovative presentations based on social justice issues currently facing our community. Loco Bloco's community arts education programs and events help to empower and uplift under-served and marginalized populations by using the arts as a tool for empowerment and change making.
This year’s production celebrates Loco Bloco’s legacy and reconnects audiences to our core values of: Artivism – Grit – Education – Family – Health – Youth Leadership – Inclusion; by bringing them to the stage and exhibiting them artistically.

The production includes:
Original music, dance, stilt and bateria (drum) compositions performed by Loco Bloco’s Performing Ensemble and community youth classes.
New and retold original theater pieces
Guest Artists: Fogo Na Roupa
