For Exploring Dead Buildings 2.0, Faustino’s performers are delving into the Havana School of Ballet, surveying the building that was designed by Italian architect Vittorio Garatti following Cuba’s revolution in the 1950s as part of the wider campus for the National Art Schools.
Intended as a training centre for the Cuban National Ballet, the brick and vaulted-tile structure was never completed due to economic repercussions of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis — when the US imposed a naval blockade on the Caribbean island after the Soviet Union deployed missiles there.
