starring Carlos Acosta
Carlos Acosta is the world's favourite dancer and On Before, which sees him dance a full-length show again, is a homage to his late mother and the most personal work he has ever created.
On Before embodies Carlos' astonishing dance vision and features collaborations with major UK and international dance makers, Russell Maliphant, Kim Brandstrup, Will Tuckett, Raul Reinoso, Yury Yanowsky, Miguel Altunaga as well as Carlos’ own choreography.
In a framework created by Carlos, On Before tells the story of a doomed relationship between a man and a woman, set to a diverse musical repertoire ranging from Handel to Cuban contemporary composer Omar Puente and culminating in a moving finale featuring a live choir performing Morten Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium.
Originally conceived in 2010, Carlos is revisiting this extraordinary show and returning to dance it again for a short regional tour as theatres across the UK re-open their doors again.
