Dance Consortium presents

Acosta Danza – Evolution

In the light of the advice from Government that theatres should close for the foreseeable future, further performances of Evolution by the Acosta Danza company, presented by Dance Consortium, will not now go ahead.

If you have purchased tickets for a performance in Brighton, Canterbury, Salford, Plymouth, Newcastle or Nottingham the theatre will be in touch with you regarding refunds. Many of the theatres who are members of Dance Consortium are independent charities which receive no funding, any support you might be able to give to your local theatres in these difficult times would be much appreciated.

We look forward to welcoming you to a Dance Consortium performance in the future.

Produced by Sadler’s Wells and Valid Productions. Co-produced with Birmingham Hippodrome; The Lowry, Salford and Norwich Theatre Royal
UK Tour Spring 2020

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.
