Marianela Boán on art worlds in Cuba and the US

During my recent break from work (and half-wired), I had a chance to interview Philadelphia-based Cuban choreographer Marianela Boán, who I got to know while working at the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival a few years back. Marianela is one of Cuba’s foremost, internationally renowned contemporary choreographers working today, and she has brought a unique approach to performance to Philly’s dance and theater communities and to Temple University’s MFA program, where she is a faculty member. Take a look at my piece on Marianela’s latest work, Decadere, and on Cuban cultural policy, on the Live Arts Festival Blog.
