Cienfuegos to Celebrate 35th Anniversary of the Hermanos Saíz Association

Cienfuegos to Celebrate 35th Anniversary of the Hermanos Saíz Association


A broad cultural program will distinguish in Cienfuegos the 35th anniversary of the Hermanos Saíz Association (AHS), which will take place from October 18 to 20, on the occasion of the birthday of the organization that brings together the best of young art in Cuba and in commemoration of the Day of Cuban Culture.

The details of each of the activities were informed at a press conference, where Alcides Portal Alfonso, president of the AHS in this south-central province of the country, said that the cultural proposals designed will take place with reduced public and by invitation, due to the sanitary restrictions in force in relation to the Covid-19.

The festivities will begin before dawn on Monday, October 18, with the space El Madrugadazo, scheduled for 5:00 a.m. at the Benny Moré Cultural Center, where the social meeting Si volvieran los dragones (If the dragons came back) will resume. Later on, the literary Café Dios y los locos (God and the Crazy Ones) will return with singer-songwriter Ariel Barreiros as musical host. In addition, the recent edition of the newsletter La última playa will be presented, with the presence of writer and playwright Atilio Caballero.

On Tuesday 19, the collective exhibition in tribute to the 35th anniversary of the AHS will be the main attraction, bringing together young and established exponents of the visual arts in Cienfuegos. In addition, the Jazzfeeling and Esfera Abierta projects will be presented, as well as the Avanti and Collage groups.

The day of celebrations will conclude on Wednesday, October 20, with the return of the much-loved social meeting El patio de mi casa, which this time will feature performances by Rolo Rivera y la Fábrik Alternativa, Jayler Martín, Danaysi Brito, Álvaro DJ, among other musicians and performers.

Portal Alfonso noted that the reunion with the cultural offerings of the AHS will also salute the 25th anniversary of the Reina del Mar Editores literary label and will be the occasion for the presentation of awards to members of the association, who will receive the 35th Anniversary Medal.
