BAYAMO, Cuba. - The Gen Rosso (New Generation) International Project delighted the people of this eastern city with two magnificent musical shows that included the performance of 160 Cuban artists and students.
The presentations, which received constant ovations from the audience, took place last Thursday and Friday at a completely sold out Bayamo Theater, the biggest of the Cuban province of Granma.
Entitled “Streetlight”, this production promotes teamwork, love, respect and unity among men, regardless of their nationality, language, beliefs, race or social origin.
Set in a poor neighborhood of Chicago, in the United States, the piece narrates a story with great dramatic content in which the actors combine humor, songs, choreographies, dance and rhythms representative of various world regions.
Resorting to music as its main tool, and supported and extraordinarily balanced by exchanges with the audience, video montages, shadow and lighting effects and a refined set design, this production never loses its magnetism.
This international project also offered two more presentations over the weekend at the Manzanillo Theater, also in Granma.
Founded in 1966, the Gen Rosso International Artistic Project - made up of representatives from Kenya, Poland, Italy, the Philippines, Spain, Brazil, Tanzania, Argentina and Switzerland - aims at contributing to the creation of a peaceful and united world.
As part of a tour around the country, the group will also have presentations in the cities of Holguin and Santiago de Cuba.
