Los Amores De Marte Y Venus

Lea has been commissioned by the British Council to create a new work for Danza Contemporanea de Cuba in Havana. The new piece is based on a work by English choreographer John Weaver (1673-1760) entitled The Loves of Mars & Venus, which was premiered in London in 1717. Lea is working with 25 dancers with new  music by Steve Blake, costume and staging design by Simon Vincenzi and lighting design by Simon Corder. The work will receive its premiere in Havana at the Alicia Alonso Theatre in Havana on the 28th September 2018.
