Previsto para finales de 2013, Fuera de escena, es un nuevo documental de Alejandra Aguirre en colaboración con Danza Contemporánea de Cuba. Intentar responder a qué es un bailarín es, desde el inicio, un pretexto para nuevas interrogantes y sobre todo para construir una historia en torno al universo danzario, pero de forma más concreta en torno al bailarín -si acaso cabe demarcar ciertas diferencias.

Testimonios, modos de vida, procesos de montajes, reflexiones, quejas y aspiraciones; forman parte de esta película grabada entre Cuba, España y Alemania.
