Contraband: The Amazing Doña Fefa

The Amazing Doña Fefa is an interdisciplinary ritual performance, movement altar, procession and Caribbean carnival led by Afro LatinX Caribbean ancestor, Doña Fefa. Part street magician, spiritist, priestess, prophetess, trickster and chieftainess, Fefa transcends time and space to show us exactly what it takes to get free.
