Following an exceptional career as a ballet star, Carlos Acosta launches his brand new company.
  • Venue: The Lyric Theatre

Following an exceptional career as a ballet star, international dance icon Carlos Acosta launches his brand new company, Acosta Danza. 

Based in Havana, the company is made up of the best dancers Cuba has to offer who have trained in both ballet and contemporary dance styles. They will perform new and existing pieces by Cuban choreographers who have rarely been seen outside the country, and commission new pieces from international choreographers who will take inspiration from their iconic nation. 

For their first UK tour, in which Acosta himself makes a guest appearance, they will perform works by Cuban choreographer Marianela Boán, international artist Jorge Crecis, Spanish dance-maker Goyo Montero, New York City Ballet resident choreographer Justin Peck and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Co-produced with The Movement and Festspielhaus St Pölten. 

Acosta Danza is produced as part of The Movement, a dance producing partnership between Birmingham Hippodrome, The Lowry and Sadler’s Wells. Supported by Arts Council England, The Movement aims to nurture talent and bring large scale dance productions to even wider audiences. 

The Lowry’s International programme is supported by
