Danza Contemporánea de Cuba returns to Nottingham following sold-out shows in 2010.
World famous, but rarely seen outside of Cuba, this breathtaking company of 21 dancers brings the heat and passion of Cuba to the stage with an eclectic mix of contemporary dance fused with Afro-Caribbean and Spanish styles.
For these performances audiences will be treated to a triple bill of works including a rare opportunity to see the stand-out hit of 2010’s programme, George Céspedes’ Mambo 3XXI and the world premiere of a piece by renowned choreographer Itzik Galili.
The company also perform a world premiere of Carmen?! Kenneth Kvarnström’s cheeky, playful interpretation of Carmen with music from Bizet.
With more than 280 premieres under its belt since its formation in 1959, Danza Contemporánea de Cuba remains the country’s flagship modern dance company.
