DeNada Dance Theatre, nominated for the 2016 UK Critics' Circle National Dance Awards in the category of 'Best Independent Company', is an exciting UK-based small/midscale company directed by choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra (UK Critics' Circle National Dance Awards nominee 2015, 'Best Emerging Artist'). Interested in subverting, exploring and exporting Hispanic/Latino culture in Britain and beyond, it creates darkly humorous, filmic work that questions gender, sexual and cultural expectations through kitschy theatricality and vigorous physicality.
