Carlos Acosta: On Before

This event has passed.
On Before starring Carlos Acosta

On Before sees Carlos Acosta dance a full-length show again, his most personal work to date and a touching homage to his late mother.

On Before embodies Carlos’ astonishing dance vision and features collaborations with major UK and international dance makers, Russell Maliphant, Kim Brandstrup, Will Tuckett, Raul Reinoso, Yury Yanowsky, Miguel Altunaga as well as Carlos’ own choreography.

In a framework created by Carlos, On Before tells the story of a doomed relationship between a man and a woman, set to a diverse musical repertoire ranging from Handel to Cuban contemporary composer Omar Puente and culminating in a moving finale featuring a live choir performing Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium.

Carlos will once again dance alongside Laura Rodriguez, an original member of his own company, Acosta Danza.
