STETCH IN LA HAVANA
In November 2021, Stretch Timemonochromes travels to Cuba for the 14th Havana Biennial of Contemporary Art. Isabella Soupart is remodelling her project with 20 Cuban dancers and musicians and part of her European team at the Museo Nacional de Belas Artes Cuba. The spaces of the museum, the outdoor entrance platform and the patio proved to be excellent spaces for the production, also in view of the confrontation with the installations on display by the Cuban artist Kcho, whose theme is illegal immigration.
20 young dancers from Acosta Danza were selected on site to collaborate in the creation. Seven other dancers were invited to join the final performance at the Museum’s theatre. A Cuban guitarist was invited to join the performance and collaborate on ‘Stretch Timemonochromes’.
