Cumming for Puerto Rico

A Post Hurricane relief Fundraiser

ABOUT

What Will The Neighbors Say? teamed up with Club Cumming, the fantasy-performance salon owned by Alan Cumming and Daniel Nardicio to produce Cumming for Puerto Rico. This event, a fundraiser to support the relief efforts in Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricanes Maria and Irma, was a rowdy evening of performance, dance, music, and storytelling that reflected the vibrancy, energy, culture and beauty of the island and its people.

 

The trauma in Puerto Rico is a cause close to the core of WWTNS? - Co-Artistic Director Jorge Morales Picó grew up on the island, as did our resident photographer Pablo Calderón-Santiago. As a team we closely followed the developments over these past weeks, and felt increasing dismay at the ineffectual and often callous response of the federal government; we felt compelled to help in any way we could. In keeping with the WWTNS? mission, we realized a central element of the story of Puerto Rico was being ignored in this time of disaster - the spirit and strength of its people. We wanted to tell a story of reconstruction rather than destruction; of survival rather than defeat. With “WWTNS? Presents Cumming for Puerto Rico,” the company aims to pay tribute to the people - their dignity and their resolve - and also to raise funds to aid the relief efforts.
