Dance so thrilling, imaginative and rich that it packed our auditorium for their first visit to us in June 2019 – 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, MBE brings us new and original works. 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.
