Cuba, Colours and Contrasts
Founded in 1959, Danza Contemporánea de Cuba is known for its unique style, a skilful blend of mambo, Afro-Caribbean dance, classical ballet and contemporary influences. For the company’s Quebec debut, three of its leading choreographers infuse the dancers’ bodies with their signature vision. Julio César Iglesias (Coil), Laura Domingo Agüero (Cénit) and George Céspedes (La Ecuación and Mambo 3XXI) explore notions of identity, creative effervescence, and the social climate of their island country. With total commitment, an impressive cohort of dancers delivers this choreographic and musical journey full of contrasts and sensuality. An invigorating cultural and artistic encounter where the myths of the past illuminate the present.
