The BlakTina 2 Festival is forging new boundaries in the festival scene in Los Angeles. The BlakTina 2 Festival is Licia Perea’s brainchild, giving focus to emerging and mid-career Black and Latina (o) choreographers. She is co-producing BlakTina with Alicia Adams of the Bootleg. Both organizations are committed to producing boundary-defying performances born from the diverse cultural and artistic landscape of LA.
