CUBA'S top dancers are set to perform a premiere of a piece of work in Suffolk tomorrow.
DanceEast, the national dance organisation for the East of England, is presenting the European premiere of a performance by Cuba's leading contemporary dance company, Danza Contemporánea de Cuba, for a one-off UK event.
Award-winning choreographer, Rafael Bonachela, was commissioned by Dance East to go to Cuba to work with the dancers, and their resulting collaboration, Demo_n/crazy, premiered in Havana last year.
Tomorrow and Saturday will be the dancers' first visit to Suffolk.

Over the past two years, Dance East has developed strong links with Cuba and the organisation decided to set up the project as the dancers were lacking exposure to choreographer.
Assis Carreiro, director of DanceEast, said: “These dancers are gorgeously athletic and passionate. They will bring some hot Cuban sunshine to Ipswich and are sure to set temperatures rising with their powerful performances.”
