The Havana carnival takes place during 6 days, divided into two weekends in the middle of August.
This tradition has a very popular origin and, although as the Cubans say, "every year it is a little bit worse", it still attracts a large number of visitors, mainly from the working class neighborhoods.
The comparsas parade along the malecón in a competition that, as in other countries, rewards the clothing, costumes, music, and decoration of the float and choreography of the dancers.
The project "Out of the Carnivals" focuses on what happens outside of the carnivals. The goal is to document what happens during the Carnival, but outside the main festivity.
