Carlos Pons Guerra: Choreographer and founder of DeNada Dance Theatre, an internationally touring company creating darkly humorous, highly theatrical and vigorously physical work that often explores themes of sexual, gender and cultural identity. DeNada Dance Theatre was nominated for a UK Critics’ Circle National Dance Award ‘Best Independent Company’ in 2016, for the triple bill Ham and Passion.
Having the backing of an organisation like dx will allow the capacity and management of my company to grow, giving me more space to focus on my choreography, and grow as an artist. I am very interested in using this opportunity to expand the scale of my work from small to mid-scale. dx also has a great reputation for excellent outdoor work, so I would like to use this opportunity to explore working in that genre as well.
