Loco7 Dance Puppet Theatre Company, founded by Colombian-born artist Federico Restrepo in 1985, develops and promotes creative productions of Dance, Theatre, Puppets, Visual Arts, Media, Music, and other forms of artistic expression. We aim to be a public association where artistic expression and cultural community meet. The company explores the junction of race, culture, history, and media in New York and throughout the global community. Loco7’s cultural policies emphasize pluralism, dialogue, and cultural transformation. Loco7 is an organization that has been built on diversity and this is reflected in the history of work. Our audiences reflect our artists: they are multigenerational, multicultural, multiracial, and inclusive of all sexual and gender identities. We pay particular attention to the growing immigrant communities and support their efforts to engage within the community.
