WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
DeNada Dance Theatre returns with a new production following a guest appearance in a Wild Card evening in 2017. Lead by Spanish choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra, TORO is a gender questioning, Hispanic take on the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, boldly dealing with the eroticism of the story. Set in a circus sideshow of a dystopian South America, in a heady world of conquistadors, virgin lands and animals in drag, TORO is a darkly comic and melodramatic tragedy about the monsters men create through power, fear and oppression. Nominated in 2016 for Best Independent Companyby the UK Critics' National Dance Award, this is a young company to watch.
