"The rhythms and beats of the YeYe Ensemble simmer as Johanna "YeYe" Suarez comes close, opens her eyes and voice to you as if there is no other, invites you to see and be seen, and then swirls on, having baited you with a sense of raw connection, of longing, of fullness"
Katy Fox
Director of We Are Movement

Y ahora permanecen la fe,
la esperanza
y el amor,
estos tres;
pero el mayor de ellos
es el amor
