Sao Paulo Dance Company


This event has passed.

Brazil’s finest dance company make their highly anticipated UK debut.

Fusing the elegance of classical ballet with the sensuality of Latin American dance, this ‘sleek, sexy and highly technical’ (The New Yorker) company of talented dancers are set to impress with three  boldly contemporary works:


Goyo Montero, resident choreographer with Carlos Acosta’s company Acosta Danza, explores the idea of collective identities in Anthem. An epic and emotionally charged ensemble piece for 14 dancers, beautifully visualised with dramatic lighting.


Created  by Nacho Duato, Artistic Director of the Berlin State Ballet. Gnawa draws on the Mediterranean colours and flavours of Valencia, powered by the hypnotic, ritualistic music of North Africa created by seven composers – Hassan Hakmoun, Adam Rudolph, Juan Alberto Arteche, Javier Paxariño, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Velez and Kusure Sarkissian.


A lively finale. Brazilian choreographer Cassi Abranches’ colourful and flirtatious Agora sculpts the movement of each dancer’s body with the percussive beats and bass grooves of Afro-Brazilian fusion.

Tour Reviews

‘To watch São Paulo Dance Company is to be a privileged witness to something of life’s beauty and mystery. Not to be missed’
The Arts Review

‘Let’s get straight to the point: they are beautiful, charismatic and dance with verve and tenacity. I’m not sure if it was the rippling torsos, the seductive hips, the high octane energy levels or the sheer brilliance of their technique, but the first night audience, myself included, was instantly smitten.’

‘This is dancing that fires you up: red-hot entertainment’
Daily Telegraph

‘A triple bill that gives us quality across the board. Everything’s well executed, beautifully lit, the dancing’s technical and athletic.’
The Guardian
