Cuba and the United Kingdom present for the second time as Islas Creativas (Creative Islands), a project of the Cuban Contemporary Dance Company (DCC) and the British Council. With the advice of Fleur Darkin, considered the most theatrical choreographer of the new British wave, the Cuban dancers prepare the piece Equinox for these days in a choreographic laboratory.
“One of the ambitions of dance is to defy gravity, elevate the body, the spirit. And at the other end is the dance that comes from the inside, from our entrails. I am intimidated to work with a company whose dancers can develop in dimensions. They, as Alice Walker says, know the secret of joy, “said Darkin, artistic director of the Scottish Dance Theatre.
Equinox, the work that will be exhibited this year by the dancers of Miguel Iglesias with the training of Fleur Darkin, also refers, from the dance, to that period of the year in which day and night last the same.
