Postcards from Cuba

By April 6, 2016 No Comments

While access to internet is Cuba is limited, we’re pleased to report we’ve received a few dispatches from our traveling colleagues. Here are a few images they’ve shared from their adventure thus far!

No jetliners for these guys, our team took that tiny little plane from Miami to Cuba!

We assume they’re thinking about all the Kickstarter supporters who helped make this trip possible … thus the big smiles!

They made it to Cuba in one piece, and core company dancer/Associate Artistic Director Teresa “Toogie” Barcelo started making friends immediately. (Photo by Sean Deckert)

See? Friends everywhere. Immediately. (Photo by Sean Deckert)

Meanwhile, core company dancers Roberto Lambaren and Nick Heitzeberg exercised the principle that site-specific dance can happen anywhere, at anytime, by anyone. (Photo by Sean Deckert)

One thing about Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre core company members – whether at home or abroad, if there’s a cool wall, they’ll find a way to dance on it!

Of course, this was all in service of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre’s performance in the ‘Old Havana: City in Movement’ festival. Here Heidi and Toogie meet with Eugenio, the festival’s director, to get approval for the historic site they’ve chosen as a performance location.

We’re so excited to share these peeks into the trip with you and to see more from our adventurers. Thank you again to everyone who supported this project through donations on Kickstarter! Stay tuned for more photos and video!

This engagement is supported by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International, in partnership with Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
