There will be multiple spaces for Dance these days. First, a new Acosta Danza season with three world premieres in the Great Theater of Havana; also, plenty of movement around Old Havana streets because of the Dance in Urban Landscapes International Festival; and the opening in Cuba of an extremely well received Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba piece.
If you want something else, we also have Visual Arts with several exhibitions. On the musical part, there will be Van Van and NG La Banda concerts in Havana, and the Dayme Arocena Tour in USA, and of course a lot more.
In the FAC proposals, music, theater, dance and a very special film premiere. And very soon the 21st French Film Festival in Cuba will start. So keep online and follow us.
See you around!
