Not managing to get abroad in August? Sadlers Wells brings summer to London

Not managing to get abroad in August? Perhaps you’ll be able to pretend you are as summer oozes into London’s theatres.

Vamos Cuba! has come to Sadler’s Wells Theatre bringing with it all the vibrancy of the island. From the team behind popular Havana Rakatan, the dance show hopes to convey the passion and vitality of Cuba’s spirit, and has a lot to live up to.

Nilda Guerra choreographs the production, which combines modern and traditional dance styles with performers salsa-ing, mambo-ing, rumba-ing and cha-cha-cha-ing around Havana airport to the sounds of Julito Padron’s live band.

Internationally acclaimed choreographer and director Nilda Guerra founded one of Cuba’s best renowned dance companies, Ballet Rakatan, and performed on prestigious stages around the world, from Sydney Opera House to New York City Center to Tokyo City Hall.
