Following an exceptional career as a ballet star, international dance icon Carlos Acosta has launched 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 this performance at Festspielhaus St Polten in Austria they will perform works by Cuban choreographer Marianela Boán, Spanish dance-maker Goyo Montero, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Jorge Crecis.
