The Joyce Theater Foundation is continuing its long-standing tradition of showcasing international dance with the return of its Cuba Festival from January 9-20 at The Joyce Theater. Among many others, the Cuba Festival will feature the U.S. debut of LOS HIJOS DEL DIRECTOR, led by George Céspedes, one of Cuba’s most daring contemporary dance makers. Céspedes and his company will make their U.S. debut with The Last Resource. With a musical collage that extends from heavy metal to electronica to the work of Cuban singer-songwriters, the dance deals with the alienation of the human spirit, and reflects upon uncertainty and change.
