Riksteatern presents SOMOS Dance Company
Through the forces of the Cuban voodoo Saints and the dance clubs’ heavy beats, the dancers take you on a journey between trance and awareness. Afro- Cuban dance meets hip hop, house and popping. Collectively, individually and intimately.
How can one portray a spiritual force through dance? The SOMOS Dance Company with dancers from both Cuba and Sweden explores this in their production Trans[e]ición. Original music and sound design based on Afro Cuban traditional rhythms and electronic beats.
“Make your body remember what our ancestral soul already knows”
Trans[e]ición is SOMOS Dance Company’s third production and produced in Cuba 2015, premiered in Havana for full houses at La lineas- Theatre Raquel Revuelta and Orden tercera, SOMOS Dance Company’s previous production "SOMOS - I am because you are" played for sold-out houses at Södra Teatern, Park Theatre in Stockholm and at Storan Gothenburg late summer in 2013.
