About Havana Rakatan
One of Sadler’s Wells’ most successful productions, Havana Rakatan returns to the Peacock Theatre for an astonishing fifth season.
Originally the dream of Cuban choreographer Nilda Guerra, the show has now toured around the world to rave reviews and has been enjoyed by thousands.
Salsa, mambo, jazz, bolero, son, cha-cha-cha and rumba all come alive in a dazzling dance display of Cuban passion that is guaranteed to get heads nodding and feet tapping. Live music is a way of life in Cuba and famous eight-piece son band Turquino will also return to perform, bringing the rhythm and soul of Havana right here to London.
A captivating journey through the dance and music of a truly unique country, Havana Rakatan is “a stunning slice of Havana life” (The Independent), performed by one of the most talented and versatile groups of dancers to emerge from Cuba in many years.
