Acosta Danza at The Lowry

Acosta Danza at The Lowry

Acosta Danza was created by Carlos Acosta in 2015, and this highly acclaimed ballet dancer has assembled an amazing group of talented like minded folk from Cuba. 

From the minute this show begins, it is dazzling and gobs hit the floor. Why? Because the movement veers from muscular and filled with precision, through to erotic and drunk on love. 

What is beautiful here, is the fact that each dance is different, but each and every dancer us able to shine. The opening piece  represents males in a way that I have rarely seen before. The two dancers are in synch, but there is a tenderness and it leaves you gasping. 

Carlos dances in the piece Mermaid, alongside Marta Ortega. And the result is mesmerising, as it captures love with ease and reminds you of the film Splash. 

If you don't normally like dance shows, the energy on display here will convert you, instantly. And if you are a fan of the genre already, Acosta Danza is one of those shows that will stay with you all year, as it is one of a kind and pure perfection.
