Based in Santiago de Cuba in the eastern province of Oriente and founded in 1960, Ballet Folklórico Cutumba is undoubtedly one of Cuba's most vibrant folkloric dance companies. Making their ADF debut, Cutumba performs Afro-Cuban-Franco-Haitian folkloric and popular dance, music, and song, ranging from gagá to son, celebrating the cultural melting pot that is Cuba.


This work also includes the photo exhibition A Body in Fukushima with photographs by William Johnston of Eiko in radiation-affected Fukushima. The photo exhibit takes place at Reynolds Industries Theater (June 11-July 25), Pleiades Gallery (June 14-July 25), and the Allenton Gallery and Semans Gallery at the Durham Arts Council (July 3-July 25).
