Latido (Heartbeat) -the new show that begins it performance for the first time on May, at the Great Theater of Havana Alicia Alonso, by the Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba Company- speaks about the contrast between death and life and the emotions they provoke when they reach at the same time.
“Life and death are seen as variations, fragments and recurrences. Nothing ends definitely. The last heartbeat may also be the first one. Everything returns, stays, resists, changes, reborn”, says Eberto García, dramatic adviser of the show, in the brochure.
After eleven years without having presented a new repertoire, Latido will be on the billboard for three consecutive weekends, from May 13 to 28, with performances at 8:30 p.m. each Thursday, Friday and Saturday; and on Sundays at 5 p.m.
“Once again we have chosen a path of much experimentation. We have left behind many things and we have collected others along the way that we needed to continue beating. That would not have been possible without the quality of the dancers we have in the school we founded 25 years ago, “choreographer Lizt Alfonso told in a press conference.
In the show – conceived in nine acts and featured with live music by César López – the dancers combine elements of flamenco, ballet, contemporary dance, folklore and popular dance music.
