Acosta Danza

Plus a guest appearance by Carlos Acosta in Rooster.

International ballet superstar Carlos Acosta brings his critically acclaimed Cuban company to Edinburgh ahead of his exciting appointment as Artistic Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet in January 2020.

In this programme of new and existing works, Acosta himself makes a guest appearance in the iconic Rooster, choreographed by Christopher Bruce to music by the Rolling Stones. The Company also perform new works, Paysage, Soudain, la nuit by visionary Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg and Satori, by breakthrough Cuban choreographer Raúl Reinoso.

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.

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