Luna Negra & Turtle Island String Quartet
The world-class groups in one package.
Performing October 1, 2010
Each group will perform separate parts of the program. Then they will combine to present Danzón. Former artistic director Eduardo Vilaro is returning to his roots for Luna Negra Dance Theater’s 10th anniversary season with the creation of a new work entitled Danzón. The Danzón has been called the official dance of Cuba, and it initially evolved from Haitian contradance. Its current form was created by Miguel Faílde Pérez in 1879, and much of the original structure remains. It is this continuity that defines Danzón as a truly unique, living art form.
