Carlos Acosta Dance Company Announces Three World Premieres

Havana, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) The company led by star dancer Carlos Acosta announced here three world premieres of Cuba and Spain in its next season in this capital.

The center course of the performances for March 2, 3, 4 and 5, at the Garcia Lorca hall of the Grand Theater of Havana Alicia Alonso, will be Avium, of Ely Regina Hernandez, Nosotros (We) of Beatriz Garcia and Raul Reinoso and Twelve of Spaniard Jorge Crecis.

According to a communique of the company, with those proposals Acosta Danza approaches fundamental topics for these times and opens a space for young choreographers.

Avium uses music of Camille Saint-Saëns and Jose Victor Gavilondo and resorts to the myth of men and women birds to talk about the cycle of life and solidarity.

We, with music also composed by Gavilondo, approaches the intimate world of a couple with its lights and shadows.

Meanwhile, Twelve, on the music of Vicenzo Lamagna, requires from dancers a top disposition physical and mental, with sports and mathematical elements.

The program titled Tercera Temporada (Third Season) includes the rerun of Alrededor no hay nada (There is nothing around) of the Spanish choreographer Goyo Montero on poems of Joaquin Sabina and Vinicius de Moraes; and End of Time, a neoclassic piece of U.S. Ben Stevenson with music of Serguei Rachmaninoff.

It also retakes to the stage Babbel 2.0 of the Catalonian creator Maria Rovira and original score of Salvador Niebla.

The company Acosta Danza made its first performance in April, 2016 and responds to an effort of its founder to offer integrating shows from the contemporary to neoclassic, without throwing away other expressions, times and styles of the dancing art.
