Eso si!
Mas que bailar en Cuba bailaremos por Cuba
One thing's for sure: We don't just dance in Cuba, we dance for Cuba

A new dance work by the celebrated AfroCuban company, Arenas Dance Company, that looks at immigration, Cuba, and Afro-Latinidad, and celebrates the 20th anniversary of award-winning director Susana Arenas Pedroso's arrival in the United States and her contributions to the Bay Area as a lead artist and cultural bearer of Afro-Cuban dance, rhythms, songs, and stories. The evening-length work, performed to both live drumming and recorded music, features Afro-Cuban folkloric and popular dance, incorporates movement and text, and integrates the sacred and the profane in Cuban culture.

Eso si, which loosely translates to "that's it!" or "one thing's for sure!", tells the story of a dancer in Havana who is preparing to go on tour to the United States with her dance company. We watch as she rehearses, packs luggage, and says her goodbyes. After giving oftrendas or offerings by Havana's Malecon to Yemaya (the orisha or deity of the sea) so that the journey is blessed, she arrives in San Francisco, where there is temptation to defect.

$18-$27.
