Due to the recent suspension of visa processing at the United States Embassy in Havana, Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba (LADC) had to cancel all its engagements in the U.S. for the month of November.
This decision was made in agreement with the Meany Center for the Performing Arts of Seattle and the Centennial Hall of the University of Arizona, venues where the presentations were going to take place, with the aim of being able to organize with sufficient time all the new visa processes that the new US government regulations impose. LADC clarifies that the visas were not denied. [. . .]
For the past 16 years, the group directed by choreographer Lizt Alfonso has performed nine times in the United States.
