Transitos Habana - Scandinavian exchange since 2012
Bibu participated in this year's edition of the festival Jornadas de Intercambio Cultural con Paises Escandinavos: Transitos Habana in Havana. The Swedish company Memory Wax has been co-organizing the festival since 2012. At the festival, artists from Cuba and Scandinavia meet and present their work through performances, workshops, exhibitions and lectures. The goal is to focus on and to develop the international cultural exchange between Cuban and Scandinavian artists through panel discussions and workshops and performances.
This year the festival focused on young audiences. Other participating companies and theatres in the 2019 edition of the festival were Clarie Parsons co, Malmö City Theater, Riksteatern (Sweden National Touring Company) from Sweden and Åben Dans from Roskilde in Denmark.
The festival is a collaboration with Danza Teatro Retazos and part of Retazo's Evoluciona - Reach Out OverSeas, a 3-year international project.
