Instituto Cervantes in Manchester hosts The Bull and the Moon, a dance-drama for families and children, which aims to break down gender stereotypes and inform and raise awareness of all possible identities. A fun, fiery and magical outdoor dance performance that blends contemporary dance, flamenco and theatre, this is a heart-warming story about the importance of being oneself, family and LGBTQ+ inclusivity.

The Bull and the Moon tells the story of Lolo, a little Spanish bull that has a little secret. He doesn’t feel like he fits in with the other bulls on the farm. He doesn’t like the big loud bullfights, and he really doesn’t enjoy cowboy rodeos either. Dragging heavy carts of hay, or being the leader of his herd- Lolo doesn’t enjoy any of that!

Instead, every night, he secretly learns how to dance with the shimmering Moon, and dreams of becoming Lola, a famous flamenco-dancing cow.
Come with us to let Lolo make his dream come true!

Directed by Carlos Pons Guerra for DeNada Dance Theatre, the work has been co-choreographed by Pons Guerra and flamenco artist Ana García. Danced to a fun and eclectic score of Spanish and Latin music and sounds, arranged by Luke Wilson, the production has been designed by Ryan Laight and produced by Spin Arts.
