As ballet superstar Carlos Acosta takes up the reins at Birmingham Royal Ballet, his critically-acclaimed company of Cuban dancers embarks on a nationwide tour of its latest programme, Evolution. This programme includes two works created specifically for Acosta Danza and two contemporary dance classics; ‘Paysage, Soudain and la nuit’ by visionary Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg: ‘Impronta’ by Barcelona-based Maria Rovira who choreographed the 2019 film ‘Yuli’ which chronicled Acosta’s life and career; Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s ‘Faun’, inspired by the Ballet Russes’ L’apres-midi d’un faune; and ‘Rooster’, Christopher Bruce’s celebration of the ’60s and ’70s set to music by the Rolling Stones, in which Acosta makes a guest appearance.
