Acosta Danza, the new dance company founded by acclaimed Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta, receives its UK première at Sadler’s Wells this autumn ahead of a UK tour beginning at The Lowry in Salford, October 12 to 14.

Acosta himself makes a guest appearance as part of the programme, which features the UK premières of works by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Goyo Montero, Jorge Crecis, Justin Peck and Marianela Boán.

Carlos Acosta said, “Acosta Danza has been founded with the intention of paying tribute to the wealth of Cuban culture. The company will develop its contemporary work, whilst also using elements of classical ballet. It is an aspiration that has grown out of my vision as an artist, incorporating all that I have learned during the past 25 years of my career.”
