Multi award-winning Spanishdance company Aracaladanza will perform the London premiere of Constellations at Laban Theatre on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 June as part of the Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership spring season of dance programmes.
Inspired by the world of abstract artist Joan Miró, Constellations sees five dancers bring an imaginary canvas to life using vibrant colours, dance, inventive props, puppetry and playful animation. Ideal for a family day out, this magical dance show is specifically created forchildren aged four and onwards and their families.
Constellations is the final show in a trilogy of works inspired by different artists who have created rich and vibrant visual art to complement Aracaladanza's aesthetic.
Director and choreographer, Enrique Cabrera, said: "We have been irresistibly drawn to a painter. Joan Miró has entered our dreams; he has tinted our imagination with an explosion of colour, guiding us through a long journey. The result isConstellations."
The UK tour is produced by MOKO Dance, a national dance partnership, with the aim of bringing bold and innovative work to audiences in the UK with a focus on interactive, fun pursuits for the whole family to enjoy.
Brian Brady, Trinity Laban's Head of Theatre Programme (Dance), said:
"I have long been a huge fan of Aracaladanza and Enrigue Cabrera's riotous imagination. We are all thrilled to present work here by exceptionally gifted artists who are creating work of the highest level for our young audiences. I can't wait to welcome the company and the audience to Laban Theatre."
