F/Punk Junkies is a Woman-centered, Black and Brown Ensemble-driven dance theater piece created by Teo Castellanos D-Projects with choreography by Michelle Grant Murray and Augusto Soledade. This new work brings the company’s "AfroRican Punk" aesthetic to the forefront of our storytelling and digs deeply into our collective ancestral roots. The text is adapted from Orisha Mythology, Black and Puerto Rican folk tales, and driven by Black punk music. 

Our connection to the ancestry of this land and the lands of our ancestors guides and informs this work. We acknowledge the Tequesta, Miccosukee, Calusa, Seminole and Taino peoples and their land we create on. We stand in solidarity, honor and respect for all of our ancestral connections from Africa to the New World and all points in between.
