Acosta Danza was founded by Carlos Acosta in Havana in 2015 with the intent of presenting the world with the new artistic talent of Cuba. For that, he counted on a troupe of dancers that were considered the best in the country, along with a number of guest choreographers who took their inspiration from the soul of the island, represented by its rhythms and dances.  The pieces which we will see at the Teatro Real now are an example of that spirit. Accordingly, Satori, created by Raúl Reinoso - a member of Acosa Danza -   illustrates the journey   towards spiritual illumination using a vocabulary which brings together contemporary dance with classical ballet. For his part, Belgian-Moroccan Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui created the singular Mermaid in 2017 for Carlos Acosta, a piece where the music and costumes have an important role. The third work on the programme is Paysage, soudain, la nuit by Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg; he uses the Cuban rumba as the basis of his composition.   A piece by British choroegrpaher Russell Maliphant follows with Two, a surprising piece where the dancer seems to fade away in an optic illusion.  The programme concludes with Spaniard Jorge Crecis and his Twelve, a spectacle without respite for either the dancers or the audience from the very outset.
