 PORTAL

A contemporary dance work using Cuba as its geographic and emotional setting. An island of contrasts, that communicate through its inhabitants in many differing ways. Cuban culture will be addressed. Portal will focus on 7 dancers, individuals, Cubans. It will aim to tell their relation to their homeland both public display and private musings. The sense of community, the complex past, a present lived day by day...and a future with very different predictions.

Arqués will use his personal approach of individual/emotional based movement to bring an original perspective of Cuba, being Cuban, and what that means to the Cubans of the 21st century.
