The Cuban company Acosta Danza offers the show Evolution at the Auditorio de Tenerife. The dancers will stage four creations at the Symphony Hall: Satori, Paysage, soudain la nuit, Impronta and Twelve.
*Notice: smoke and strobe effects are used during the show.
Acosta Danza offers some key works of their repertoire: the mystery of the Satori show, and a sunset celebration with Paysage, soudain la nuit; a tribute to dance and mathematics during Twelve, while Impronta shows a fusion between folk and contemporary dance, Cuban music, visual arts and the proverbial power of Cuban dancers.
Founded and directed by Carlos Acosta, this company is the most recent report card of the Cuban scene to the world. The company has performed in venues such as the Royal Opera House, the Royal Albert Hall and Sadler's Wells in London; the New York City Center in the United States and the Chinese National Theatre.
→ Acosta Danza was nominated in 2021 by the Dance Section of the Critics' Circle (UK) to get the National Dance Award as the best independent company.
