The revered Cuban dance company Danza Contemporánea de Cuba have announced a UK tour that will take in 10 venues over February and March this year. It will mark the first appearance the company has made in the UK since 2012 and will feature three UK premieres by leading choreographers.

The tour, which will take place from February 14th until March 18th, will begin at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall before passing through Newcastle, London, Cardiff, Plymouth, Brighton, Inverness and Edinburgh, before finishing in Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre.

Danza Contemporánea de Cuba are a persuasive and physical contemporary dance company known for their mix of African-Caribbean rhythms, jazzy American modernism and influences from classical European ballet. The dance company was founded by Ramiro Guerra in 1959 but is now under the leadership of Miguel Iglesias.

Their UK tour will feature premieres of pieces by Belgian-Colombian Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, the UK’s Theo Clinkard and the company’s very own Cuban wunderkind George Céspedes.
