Saint-Saëns Meets Havana: Danza Contemporanea de Cuba
Danza Contemporánea de Cuba, founded in 1959, has now become the country's leading contemporary dance company, with a hybrid style, and a piquant mix of Afro-Caribbean rhythms, jazzy American modernism and European ballet inflections. It is here, in the bustling heart of the Cuban capital, that the company celebrates Camille Saint-Saëns.
In 'Polvo, Palabras, Sombras, Nada', the Cuban choreographer George Céspedes tells us all about his fears of the world around him. This is a work of great artistic maturity, in which the dancers, always equal in performance, sign with this ballet a great tribute to the French composer.
With music by Camille Saint-Saëns
