This he has done, for example, with his reworking of the story of Carmen, TORO, Beauty and the Bull, coming soon to Sadler’s Wells' Lilian Baylis studio.
Clearly, his avant-garde work, suffused with dark humour and characterised by high physical energy, is not to everybody’s taste; but this BBC Four documentary, Prejudice and Passion, goes a long way towards acquainting viewers with his ideas and how he puts them across.
Prejudice and Passion follows Carlos as he begins choreographing a new children’s production at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, which tells the true story of two male penguins raising a chick together.
It’s dance and choreography at the service of an agenda – can Carlos Pons Guerra overcome prejudice and gain acceptance from family audiences?
Culture Whisper says, do give it a go. You may well be pleasantly surprised...
