Bailarines entre los Bastidores
(Dancers in the Wings)
In May 2014 I was introduced to the Cuban contemporary dance troupe Malpaso. I photographed them in rehearsal at the Joyce Theater in New York City. They were dancing to the music composed and performed by Arturo O’Farrill and members of the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble. In December 2014,I worked on this series of the dancers at their live performance at the Teatro Mella in Havana. They premiered Despedida, accompanied onstage by the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra.
