DeNada Dance Theatre | Mariposa

All tickets £19
Tuesday 12 October 2021
Show Overview 

Following an incredible Leeds debut in 2018, don’t miss the return of DeNada Dance Theatre with Mariposa, a transgender tragedy inspired by Puccini’s Madame Butterfly.

Under the neon lights of a distant Caribbean port, a local rent boy and a foreign sailor fall ominously in love in choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra’s inventive reimagining. Experience this operatic dance drama set in post-revolution Cuba, with characters engulfed in a tropical storm of repressed desires.

Mariposa is a passionate exploration of what we are ready to sacrifice in order to be loved and accepted. This brand new production is performed to original music by Luis Miguel Cobo.

Age guidance: 12+ due to scenes and content of a sexual nature.
