Pedro Ruiz: Coming Home

In January 2011, acclaimed New York City choreographer Pedro Ruiz returned to his native Cuba for an unprecedented collaboration: Ruiz worked with Cuba's premiere modern dance troupe, Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, to create a dance about Cuba. The project, allowed by special permission from both the U.S. and Cuban governments, led to Horizons, a spectacular half hour dance which premiered at Havana's Mella Theater on January 28 and had a two week run at the Joyce Theater in New York City in May. A WNET crew traveled with Ruiz to Havana to document this cultural exchange.
