Valid Productions has been a promoter of the performing arts in the UK and Europe since 2009. It has always worked closely with Carlos Acosta and was the co-producer of his Classical Farewell Tour throughout the UK and the rest of the world in 2016 including Havana, Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong.
Valid Productions is supporting and promoting very talented emerging dancers from Carlos Acosta’s Cuban based Dance Company Acosta Danza. During the last five years Acosta Danza have performed in Austria, Chile, China, Cuba, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom and United States.
The Company’s first tour Debut was successful throughout Europe. In Autumn 2018, the Company celebrated Carlos Acosta 30 Years of Dance at The Royal Albert Hall. 2019 saw Acosta Danza tour Asia for the first time and return to Europe for the Evolution tour. In 2020, a smaller group of Acosta Danza dancers performed a new more intimate programme entitled Up Close at The Linbury Theatre at London’s Royal Opera House before embarking on a UK wide tour of the Evolution programme to more UK venues with the Dance Consortium which was sadly suspended due to Covid-19. In Autumn 2021 The Company undertook a Spain wide tour of the Evolution programme. Earlier this year, the Company return to the UK and Europe to bring audiences a new programme 100% Cuban which is a mixed bill of existing and new works by Cuban choreographers Raul Reinoso and Norge Cedeño and this summer Acosta Danza will be touring Spain to perform Carlos Acosta’s Cuban choreography Tocororo Suite.
In summer 2021 and again this summer Valid Productions is co-producing Carlos Acosta’s On Before with Norwich Theatre Royal which will be performed in Norwich and at the Peralada Festival in Spain.
