I didn't expect anything by it. I just wanted to write something by the name of Pig's Foot, which is Pata de Puerco in Spanish. I liked that title and I began asking myself what it could be. And then I imagined that it could be a hamlet or a little village in the remote regions of Cuba, really disconnected from everybody. And maybe place the beginning in the 1800s when the Cuban and the Spanish War, The 50 Years War, was happening.

The piece had been seen only a handful of times after the primal choreography and Stravinsky’s experimental score, now considered one of the greatest pieces of music of the 20th century, created a scandal at the 1913 premiere in Paris.
