5:00 PM U.S. Cuba Ties: A Thaw, Revisited During the Obama administration, optimism swelled in U.S.-Cuba relations. On December 17, 2014, the U.S. announced that it would end its policy of hostility and look to engage Cuba. This has led to the restoration of full diplomatic ties, the removal of Cuba from the U.S. State Department terrorism list, as well as the formation of an agreement to allow commercial air flights between the two countries for the first time in fifty years.

With the change in U.S. administrations in 2016, this optimism turned to pessimism as President Trump threatened to roll back the Obama administration rapprochement. Ultimately, the Trump administration's policies, while leaving key parts of the Obama-era policy intact, reinstate restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba and U.S. business dealings with the military-run conglomerate.

The recent release detailing these new constraints leaves room for debate on how they will affect the future relationship between the two countries. In Cuba, for its part, these changes take place against a backdrop of a nation preparing for a successor to President Raul Castro in 2018.

8:00 PM Dance: Compangnie Herve Koubi Recognized as one of Europe's most distinctive choreographers, Hervé Koubi draws creative strength from his Algerian roots and Mediterranean culture. His company makes its San Diego debut with "What the Day Owes to the Night" (Ce Que le Jour Doit ŕ la Nuit), a highly physical, stunningly fluid work for 12 French Algerian and African male dancers. The piece combines capoeira, martial arts and urban contemporary dance, and is packed with backflips, head spins, and powerful imagery evocative of Eastern paintings and Islamic architecture. "What the Day Owes to the Night" is danced to an eclectic score that features Johann Sebastian Bach, Hamza El Din & the Kronos Quartet, and traditional Sufi music.

Admission/Cost: $9 - $46
