Festival Details - "Carlos Acosta On Before"...

Start: Friday, April 19, 2024 7:30PM
End: Saturday, April 20, 2024 9:30PM

The Sarasota Cuban Ballet School is honored to present Carlos Acosta On Before at the Sarasota (FL) Opera House on April 19-20, 2024. On Before is an intimate piece for just two dancers Carlos Acosta choreographed in 2010 as a tribute to his mother after her death. Acosta will dance at the Sarasota Opera House with Laura Rodriguez from Acosta Danza, the company he founded in Havana. On Before is the most personal work he has ever created.

"It's a very abstract and contemporary ballet that represents at once the mother, the lover, the full circle. My mother was the balance in my house to my father's volatility. She was very soft and caring, very sweet, almost like a kid. I made this show to pay her homage." Carlos Acosta, CBE

On Before features choreography by world-renowned artists, including Russell Maliphant, Kim Brandstrup, and Will Tuckett, alongside Acosta's choreography.

Born in Havana in 1973, Acosta trained at the National Ballet School of Havana in Cuba. After winning a succession of awards, including the Prix de Lausanne in 1990, he went on to dance professionally with the world's most prestigious companies, with London's Royal Ballet becoming his home. Acosta retired from classical ballet in 2016, after 28 years. He established Acosta Danza in 2016 and in January 2020 he became Director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.
