Compañia Jesús Carmona The Jump

This event has passed
Eight men, all in black polo neck tops and trousers, feet bare, stand in a street in front of a whitewashed wall. Seven face to the right, in identical pose, hands at their sides, heads turned towards us. One dancer stag leaps in the other direction, arms lifted above his head, knees bent up.

The aptly dubbed ‘Catalan virtuoso’, Jesús Carmona, returns to Sadler’s Wells with his signature elegant, powerful choreography in tow. The former principal of the Ballet Nacional de España is trained in multiple genres, from flamenco, ballet and tap, to 17th century Italian court dances – expect a show that crosses genres and styles, pushing the boundaries of flamenco in this brand-new piece.

The Jump explores art’s ability to affect personal growth, as Carmona looks at his own journey around masculinity in the 21st century.
