Ballet Black Open Rehearsal

Members' Event

Two Ballet Black performers sit on the same chair with one hand raised towards the sky.

Get behind the scenes at our open rehearsal with Ballet Black with choreographer Mthuthuzeli November.

Get closer to the action and watch the Ballet Black dancers as they rehearse a snippet from their upcoming repertoire ahead of their Barbican performance in March, Pioneers. See Nina: By Whatever Means by Mthuthuzeli November in rehearsal, a love letter to musician, performer and activist, Nina Simone that combines ballet, jazz and the blues in a moving and inspiring piece of dance theatre. The rehearsal will be followed by a Q&A with Artistic Director Cassa Pancho MBE, hosted by Toni Racklin (Head of Theatre at the Barbican).
