Mind blowing and passionate are words used to describe Ballet Revolución, an explosive fusion of Ballet, Contemporary dance and modern hip-hop from the undisputed home of dance, Cuba. This production is raw, fresh, dynamic Cuban Cocktail of unbridled passion, pure energy and athletic skill.
Passion and ferocity are fundamental to Cuban dancers. They don’t just dance with the music they dance inside it and this is uniquely Cuban. This dynamism in Cuban dance inspired Producer Mark Brady and Jon Lee to create an exciting new dance event straight out of Havana, and bring it to the world.
In London for only 4 weeks…This is a unique opportunity to see some of the world’s most talented classical and contemporary dancers from the elite companies in Cuba perform way beyond their normal repertoires. Throughout the show, the performers demonstrate their phenomenal versatility, combining styles as diverse as classical ballet and hip hop.
The outstanding live band will perform popular hits from Shakira, Ricky Martin, Beyoncé, Usher, Prince and many more, while the phenomenal dancers display raw athleticism and virtuosity in everything from classical ballet to salsa, samba and even martial arts.
It’s an Evolution of Ballet as much as a Revolution.
Ballet Revolucion’s choreography is a force of nature combining the styles of three choreographers to create an entire new work. In a time of dance where apathy is the flavour of the day, Ballet Revolucion’s choreography is unapologetic in its visceral assault on the audience. Ballet Revolución will shake Cuban dance to its African, Spanish and Russian roots.
The dancers are musically soulful. Reeking of sensuality, which is a result of their African, Spanish and indigenous ancestry mixed with supreme technique due to years of Russian involvement in Cuba. These entire elements combine to make an explosive full-blooded engaging night at the Theatre.
