Carlos is the world’s favourite dancer and this is his most personal work to date. On Before builds on Carlos’ astonishing dance vision and features collaborations with major UK and international dance stars.
On Before is created and danced by Carlos Acosta and Royal Ballet Principal Dancer Zenaida Yanowsky.
The show combines existing and new choreography by some of the world’s leading dance makers, Russell Maliphant, Kim Brandstrup, Will Tuckett, Edwaard Liang, Yuri Yanowsky and Miguel Altunaga in a framework created by Carlos which tells the story of a doomed relationship between a man and a woman.
The show has a wide-ranging score from Handel to a commission from Cuban composer Omar Puente and culminates in a moving finale featuring the live choral work of Morte Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium.
