the rituals y las fiestas is a suite of three dances threaded within the live music of 7-piece Latin folk alternative band, Cuñao.
The suite begins with Fortunato, a solo choreographed and performed by alexx makes dances’ Artistic Director alexx shilling. A hypnotic meditation on the time/space distance that grows when family members immigrate far from the ones they love.
cuerva urban folklòrico dances to Mas Alla and Eres Tu. Their unique and seamless mix of contemporary, folk and urban dance vocabulary brings the rhythms of Cuñao to life
