Let us tell you a secret.
The name “Nueveochenta” was inspired in the cipher 9,822, which is the acceleration of a body under the influence of the gravitational force. Nobody on the planet Earth is exempt of this force.
We are mass under gravitational acceleration.
We are contemporary dance in the air.
We are Nueveochenta.

Others say about us
“El vuelo de la Compañía Nueveochenta es de altura, danza única que suspende la mirada y, mas allá del vértigo, levanta el ánimo.”
“Veranos de la Villa 2020 counted in its program with the premiere of the play Solo, con ella y contra ella(...) We never thought that dancing on gravity, the cosmos and the movement of objects, through acrobatic dance, could speak to us about friendship, love, jealousy or sincerity”
“Work and style impeccable!" It’s been a pleasure to count on Nueveochenta company in several shows of the UMD and Beta Publica. Their performances are greatly appreciated by the audience!”
“Juan Leiba is the accurate expression of effort and meticulous work and his approach at Nueveochenta is able to transmit to all of us the desire to fly while we watch him astonished float between the ground and his emotions”.
