ENCORE SCREENING  

Yuli is the nickname given to Carlos Acosta by his father, Pedro. From a young age, Yuli resisted any kind of discipline and education, growing up on the streets of a run-down neighborhood in Havana. But Pedro knows his son has natural talent and forces him to attend Cuba’s National Dance School. Yuli ends up captivated by the world of dance, and becomes the first black artist to dance as Romeo with the Royal Ballet in London, where he would be a principal dancer for 17 years. Yuli deals with two realities: the past, in which we look at the childhood and youth of Carlos Acosta, and the present, in which the dancer and choreographer works with his company in Havana today, rehearsing a work that tells his life story.

Preceded by Nela Andrew Margetson, UK, 2018, 3m A strikingly intimate portrait of the great Royal Ballet principal ballerina Marianela Nuñez, as she dances to Nina Simone, choreographed by Will Tuckett.
