De Rompe y Raja Cultural Association presents Christo Moreno, a criolo musical theater adaptation of a sacred story at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Christo Moreno explains the importance of the African legacy in Peru by telling the story of Lima’s patron saint, El Senor de los Milagros. This saint has origins in the slave ships that brought the people who would become Afro-Peruvians to Peru. Christo Moreno is an epic legend that spans early times when Angolan slaves painted black Christs on mud brick walls in the 17th century to the current era when tens of thousands of people take part in Christo Moreno processions.
