Theo Clinkard: I seek not only beauty, but also to entice the audience

Danza Contemporanea de Cuba (Contemporary Dance of Cuba – DCC) has always been characterized by its distinctive style, creativity and mixture of techniques, all tied together by a universal language.

Since January, the company directed by maestro Miguel Iglesias has regrouped with a new cast of dancers, after several of its key figures left to pursue other projects.
