The programme also includes a clever contemporary interpretation of the opera Carmen?! by the Director of Helsinki Dance Company, Kenneth Kvarnström, featuring seven of the male dancers from the company and Bizet’s beautiful music arranged by Rodion Shchedrin.
For 50 years, Danza Contemporánea de Cuba has produced dancers of the highest level with a style evoking the sensuality, soulfulness and heart of the Cuban spirit. Collaborations with international leaders in dance have fused with the company’s Afro Caribbean and Spanish roots to produce an electrifying, evocative and distinctly unique expression of all that is Cuban.
