The starting point of La Macana's new creation in collaboration with Samir Akika is a challenge, the challenge of put on stage a father and his teenager son. The first one, an experienced Cuban-Spanish dancer who has never had to face a bigger demanding performance in his long artistic trajectory that dancing with such a close partner. On the other hand, an amazing, athletic and creative fourteen years old boy, plenty of energy and fully committed to confronting his millennial perspective with his beloved father.
