Havana RakatanHavana Rakatan returns to Peacock Theatre for its sixth season this year, proving it to be one of Sadler's Wells' most successful productions. The show is pure swinging with all the jazzy trumpeting and soulful rhythms of a live Cuban band setting the pace - even the name Havana Rakatan is evocative of an infectious stream of foot-stomping, body-twisting dances. Choreographer Nilda Guerra has put this show in motion by reliving the story of Cuban dance and music on stage. From its roots in African and Spanish cultures - there's a clever fusion at the beginning - to the full flavour of salsa, rumba and cha-cha-cha, the women delight in their sultry selves and the men are men. It sizzles with Cuban passion and then conjures up a street party in Havana you'd definitely want to be invited to.

 

About Peacock Theatre

This theatre is a major force on the national and international dance scene, with an innovative programme from Sadler's Wells that is keeping London's finger on the pulse. The Peacock Theatre became the company's base from 1996 to 1998 when a new theatre was being built on its Islington site and, since that time, has been a shining star in the Sadler's Wells sphere.
