Dance Consortium present

International ballet superstar Carlos Acosta and his critically acclaimed Cuban company Acosta Danza perform a programme of new and existing works.

Acosta makes a guest appearance in the iconic ‘Rooster’, choreographed by Christopher Bruce to music by the Rolling Stones. The company also perform new work, ‘Paysage, Soudain, la nuit’ by visionary Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg and ‘Impronta’, which was created specially for Acosta Danza by Spanish choreographer Maria Rovira.  Inspired by Vaslav Nijinsky’s ‘L’après midi d’un faune’, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui completes the bill with masterpiece ‘Faun’, set to Debussy’s original score with additional music from Nitin Sawhney.

There will be a post-show Q&A with members of the company after the first performance.

Produced by Sadler’s Wells and Valid Productions. Co-produced with Birmingham Hippodrome; The Lowry, Salford and Norwich Theatre
