This piece represents a folkloric Afro-Cuban couple's dance that mimics the mating rituals of a rooster and hen. The male dancer attempts to metaphorically "catch" the woman, and she coyly dances around him until she basically allows herself to be caught. It stands as a celebration of feminine power and resilience as well as sensuality and enchantment.
