Information

All eyes are on Birmingham this summer for the Commonwealth Games – and to mark the moment, BRB’s Director Carlos Acosta is bringing together three thrilling works for a triple bill presented as part of Birmingham International Dance Festival 2022. On Your Marks! celebrates the expressive energy and gravity-defying athleticism of the company’s world-class dancers.

Jorge Crecis created the dazzling 12 for Acosta Danza, Carlos Acosta’s company – and dancers from BRB and Acosta Danza will be teaming up for the first time to premiere a new version of this ‘dance-sport’ dive into the power of teamwork, retitled 24. There’ll be Interlinked, a new work inspired by the Games from brilliant young Brazilian choreographer Juliano Nunes, whose recent pieces include commissions for NDT2 and Marie-Agnès Gillot. And to close, a dynamic, ecstatic ode to the power of nature and the glory of movement: Will Tuckett’s Lazuli Sky, set to John Adams’s irresistible Shaker Loops and premiered by BRB to great acclaim in 2020. No false starts here!
