Cuba – Santiago de Cuba: In the Eye of the Beholder (Short Film 10:00)

Original Performance on February 5, 2007

2007 – This informal film short reveals Maida’s brief engagement with the people and culture in Cuba. Sensual dance, jazz music, voodoo, religion, and revolution are part of the Haitian-Afro-Cuban culture of Santiago.

Maida visited Cuba for ten days, February 5 – 10, 2007 to study the dance/text/ritual of the Cutumba Ballet Folklorico Santiago de Cuba.  Jim Lepore, dancer/choreographer/professor, made this trip possible.
