DanceXchange presents TORO: Beauty and the Bull
About this Event
DeNada Dance Theatre presents Spanish choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra’s TORO, a gender questioning, Hispanic take on the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, boldly dealing with the eroticism of the original story.
Set in a circus sideshow of a dystopian South America, in a heady world of conquistadors, female bulls, virgin lands and animals in drag, TORO is a darkly comic and melodramatic tragedy about the monsters men create through power, fear and oppression.
DeNada Dance Theatre is a UK Critics’ Circle National Dance Award Nominee in the category of ‘Best Independent Company’.
Commissioned by DanceXchange, supported by Arts Council England and produced by Spin Arts.
This production takes place in The Patrick Centre, Birmingham Hippodrome.
