Dance — Danza Contemporanea de Cuba
The explosive mixture of contemporary avant-garde and Latin American sensuality makes Danza Contemporánea de Cuba a company full of surprises. Young Cuban choreographers explore the area of tension between modern ballet and new aesthetics of movement with the ensemble’s 24 dancers, but director Miguel A. Iglesias Ferrer also repeatedly invites international guests to the island. In "Consagración," Afro-Cuban dance meets Igor Stravinsky: In 2018, the French Christophe Béranger and Jonathan Pranlas-Descours created the first Cuban production to the revolutionary score of "Le Sacre du Printemps." In an old Persian poem about the impermanence of all things earthly, leading Cuban choreographer George Céspedes found the words "Polvo, Palabras, Sombras, Nada.” The ballet about "Dust, Words, Shadows, Nothing" was created to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of the composer Camille Saint-Saëns.
