Acosta In The Air

“The 33-year- old Cuban Carlos Acosta is a principal guest artist with the Royal Ballet in London. Acosta’s art is a combination of physique, discipline, personality and brains. What distinguishes him is a connection to the real world. He is not about repeating old versions of the same role: He is entirely in the moment. Even in tights and on tiptoes, Acosta strives to maintain ties to his roots.”
