The word iré comes from the Lucumí language and religion in Cuba derived from Africa and means—Blessings. Good Fortune. Balance. Destiny.
We Have Iré is a bilingual musical play that tells the true stories of Black Caribbean Spanish speaking immigrants living in the United States, and their influence on and experience with American culture—a poet, a musician, a dancer, and a DJ—all Cuban. We Have Iré looks at the challenges of being an immigrant artist and establishing one’s voice in a new country. The play is about their inspiring, difficult yet triumphal journeys from Cuba’s countryside to the big city, to the United States, and back.
We Have Iré is a multidisciplinary theater production by Paul S. Flores. Developed with Jazz Composer Yosvany Terry, Dj Leydis, choreographer Ramón Alayó, and director Rosalba Rolón.
We Have Iré is funded by WESTAF and National Performance Network/Visual Artist Network (NPN/VAN) Creation & Development Fund Project. Co-commissioned by MACLA and Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater
