Latin Music Institute pays tribute to Alicia Alonso
Havana, Jan 5 (Prensa Latina) The Latin Music Institute (ILM) announced on Tuesday that it will premiere in Cuba its 'Tito reacciona a Alicia Alonso' (Tito reacts to Alicia Alonso) cartoon series, an episode in homage to the prima ballerina assoluta.
Written and produced by Daniel Martin Subiaut, creator of the charismatic character, the episode will evoke Alonso's history and legacy for the knowledge and enjoyment of the new generations.
The audiovisual produced in collaboration with the National Ballet of Cuba pays tribute to the only artist who, without being a musician, received the Star of the Century award in the year of her 100th birthday, a recognition granted by the ILM to paradigmatic figures of art.
Alonso had an intense and long career in which she combined excellence on stage, choreographic creation and pedagogical work.
The short cartoon film will be released in cinemas this weekend, so Cubans can enjoy the story, which pays homage to Alicia Alonso by the friendly child, Tito, the main character. From February 1, it will be available on the official Tito Reacciona Youtube website.
'Tito Reacciona' (Tito Reacts) was created in 2019 in Mexico to pay tribute to several ambassadors of culture on this continent and to highlight the values of Latin artistic heritage through the language of 2D animation.
