What I love about cabaret is the mix of serious and funny performances – all executed superbly.

Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis has a bowling alley, a restaurant, and a small cabaret theater where local artists can mount their latest creation. – and the audience sits at small tables or a bar and can order drinks and food!

“Santeria is a danced religion because dancing expresses the fundamental dynamism of the life force.  Words cannot express the mystery.  The world is a dance.  Its meaning lies in its constant movement.  The dance is the expression of this mystery.”   Santeria: African Spirits in America by Joseph M. Murphy

The tradition of Afro-Cuban dance goes way, way back in history.  It’s rooted in the dance and drum traditions of the Yoruba in Africa which were brought to Cuba via the slave trade.  Facial expressions are part of the movements that relate to mythology, ancestors, and storytelling and are accompanied by drumming and singing.  I am so very thankful to Rene and the dancers for providing the opportunity to photograph them.
