Claudia Hilda, contemporary dance
Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look into the performers’ daily work and preparation. We will unfold essential elements that make up Cuban dance as one of the most beautiful and eclectic techniques within the dance world. This training weaves American modern dance with Afro-Cuban folk elements, building a method that combines virtuosity and temperament, lyricism and strength, sensuality and dynamism. The result is the emergence of creative dancing bodies that navigate the stage with incomparable grace, expressiveness, and endless dynamic possibilities.
Claudia Hilda is a Cuban New York-based award-winning contemporary dancer and choreographer. She aims to subtlety interweave an expanded multidisciplinary practice combining performance, video art, and writing, to create art that is sensitive, reflective, and widely aware of its contemporary times. Her art claims freedom, beauty, receptiveness, innovation, and joy, yet is also an expression of combat and resistance as the gestural and visual articulation of the elsewhere communities’ languages, and fights. Hilda is an award-winning contemporary dancer, dance maker and researcher who has collaborated in neoclassical, contemporary, and conceptual pieces with international creators and performed in major theatres around the world.
