At the cutting edge of theatre and dance, the UK has much to both offer and learn from Caribbean theatre and dance companies through showcasing, workshops, choreographic exchanges and capacity building.

It takes 20 to tango by Billy Cowie

In one of the reviews for my new piece, Tangos Cubanos, the reader is told to run to see Danza Contemporánea de Cuba (DCC) – I would agree. They are, simply said, the best dance company in the world (and by a country mile). Forget Mariinsky, Pina Bausch Company, Forsythe etc – DCC are the real deal. They are all technically superb dancers willing to do anything, brimming with energy, intelligent and, for me above all, full of personality – every one is a true individual.
