HAVANA, Cuba, Mar 10 (ACN) “It has been a difficult year, as dancers need training, opportunities to be creative and commitment to the production process,” said Susana Pous, dancer, choreographer and director of this three-year-old dance troupe said about these months of pandemic and its impact on their projects.
When the virus appeared they had some projects on the table. She was in Germany at the time, at the invitation of a ballet company.
“It has also been hard on a personal and physical level. No more touching or training and rehearsing with others, which is no less essential. Our dancing involves a great deal of physical contact, so it’s not the same, no matter how much you try to keep in shape at home,” she stressed.
About the company's link with social networks, she mentioned that they have done a couple of things, including a home video to celebrate Micompañía’s anniversary. However, she pointed out, never will a technological product properly replace what training together truly means to us.
“We hope that in the next few months we will be able to pick up where we left off and recover some of the international tours, live performances and new works that we had on schedule,” she underscored.
