Cafe Cubano

This musical is based on the childhood memories of choreographer Neri Torres and her grandmother, who initiated her into the daily ritual of drinking cafe and listening to Afro-Cuban legends. Neri transforms the legends into metaphorical movement, exploring different styles of Cuban dance and music and comparing them to those same strong, dark elements found in Cuban coffee.
