Caribé presents Havana Return, por favor – Cancelled (Covid-19)
Fri May 15 at 6:30 pm
Through a lens both retrospective and current, Caribe’s ‘Havana Return, por favor’ shares recollections of a first-generation Cuban migrant returning home after many years in Australia. This striking and varied stage production with its steamy Caribbean rhythms will transport the audience straight to the heart of Cuba.
Cuban dancer Adrian Medina exudes elegance, exoticism and Cubanissimo against a backdrop of archival footage from 70s and 80s Cuba accompanied by an 8-piece band. The culmination of this blend of skills is a unique stage performance, making the show a memorable experience. As Master of Ceremonies, Medina keeps up a narrative between the musical numbers, filling in the historical background with juicy anecdotes and humour. This is followed by a set of social dancing.
The group sound stems from Gai Bryant’s compositions and arrangements which embody a knowledge of traditional Cuban styles integrated with years of jazz experience. The result is a maverick interpretation of traditional and classic styles that are performed with élan and spirit.
