Mixed Bill

Ballet Black

seven dancers are in a line in serveal balletic poses. The positions range from low to the ground, to the dancer at the back of the line in a jump.

Dance so thrilling, imaginative and rich that it packs our auditorium every time – the hugely popular Ballet Black is back with a mixed bill full of lyrical contrasts and beautiful movement.

For her latest programme, Artistic Director Cassa Pancho brings us original work: The Royal Ballet’s Olivier Award-winning choreographer Will Tuckett blends classical ballet, poetry and music to explore ideas of home and belonging while Mthuthuzeli November contemplates the purpose of life in The Waiting Game. Expect sensational solos, seductive duos and fiercely dynamic pieces performed seamlessly by the group.

Ballet Black is transforming the dance landscape by giving a platform to artists of black and Asian descent as well as to new and established choreographic voices whose unexpected stories and themes come from the heart to resonate with modern audiences.
