Valentine’s Day is getting closer and we invite to celebrate it with Dance. Two premiers from two outstanding Cuban dance companies. On one side, Danza Contemporanea de Cuba with Mas alla del polvo, a world premiere by Cuban choreographer and dancer Miguel Altunaga. On the other hand, Acosta Danza, lead by Carlos Acosta with this new season Mitos, starting in Havana and continuing with a tour all over the Island. You can’t miss anything of this.
We’ll keep moving with Music cause, what a better way to fall in love? Look down the presentations and the artist of your preference and book the date. We bring everything for everyone. In Visual Arts, La Marca is celebrating its third anniversary. Check that out and join them. In Literature, there are still some proposals from the International Havana Book Fair. For closure, as every week, the FAC program.
We’ve been trying to make you fall and we want you to fall for us. So look and find, cause we have plenty. See you around!
