UK PREMIERE Debut Wednesday 27 – Saturday 30 September Tickets: £12 – £55
Following an exceptional career as a ballet star, Carlos Acosta launches his new company, Acosta Danza. The company features Cuban dancers who have trained in both ballet and contemporary dance styles. They perform new commissions and existing pieces by Cuban choreographers who have rarely been seen outside the country, and international choreographers taking inspiration from this iconic nation.
For their first UK tour, in which Acosta himself makes a guest appearance, they perform works by Marianela Boán, Goyo Montero, Justin Peck, Jorge Crecis and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Acosta Danza is produced by Sadler’s Wells and Valid Productions with co-production support from The Movement and Festspielhaus St Pölten.
