DeNada Dance theatre | Toro - Beauty and the Bull

DeNada Dance theatre | Toro - Beauty and the Bull


Nominated for Best Independent Company at the National Dance Awards 2016, DeNada Dance Theatre [] have raged onto the UK dance scene with their unique and innovative narrative productions infused with dark humour and sensuality.

This April they perform Carlos Pons Guerra’s _TORO_, a gender-questioning, Hispanic take on the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, boldly dealing with the eroticism of the story.

Set in 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.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: 14+ due to scenes of a strong sexual nature and partial nudity
