CARMEN.maquia & Club Havana present
An NCPA-More2Screen (UK) Presentation
Dance Theatre Screening (90 mins)
Ballet Hispanico will “whisk us away to contemporary dance’s hottest spot” (The Washington Post) in this imaginative and theatrical showcase of Latin-inspired dancing at its best. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by The Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s classic opera about a passionate gypsy. In Club Havana, the intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo and cha-cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz. Riveting from start to finish, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco.
