Meet Jorge Crecis - choreographer of 24

Our On Your Marks! mixed programme, to be performed at Birmingham Hippodrome this summer (Thu 23 - Sat 25 June) includes 24 by Jorge Crecis. This sport-dance piece, adapted from Crecis's previous work 12, will be danced by 12 dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet joined by 12 dancers from Carlos Acosta's Cuban company, Acosta Danza.

24 will be performed alongside Will Tuckett's Lazuli Sky and Interlinked, a new work from Brazilian choreographer Juliano Nunes.
