Danza Contemporánea de Cuba 2017

14 February - 18 March

Danza Contemporánea de Cuba was founded in 1959 and has since become the nation’s flagship contemporary dance troupe with a hybrid, hothouse style that is a pungent blend of African-Caribbean rhythms, jazzy American modernism and inflections from European ballet.

Danza Contemporanea de Cuba have for 50 years produced dancers of the highest level with a style evoking the sensual, mystical and raw heart of Cuban spirit. Collaborations with international leaders in dance have combined with the African-Caribbean and Spanish fusions to produce an electrifying, evocative and distinctly unique expression of all that is Cuban.

  • ★★★★★

    The company of dancers dance with extraordinarily virile sexuality.

  • ★★★★★

    Marvellous! I could have watched all night. The applause was long, loud and thoroughly merited.

  • ★★★★★

    This is a stellar company and it’s a real privilege to see it perform.

  • There’s no salsa, no high-heeled rumba – just some of the finest contemporary dancers touring the world today

  • A seamless, urgent fusion of Afro-Caribbean, Latin and modern-American – that holds the attention like glue

  • Cuba’s most prestigious modern dance company knows how to grab attention from the start

  • Fast, funny and furious
