Ballet Black

Tue 26 June 2018


Audiences can’t resist the ‘joyously unpredictable’ (Guardian) programmes danced by Ballet Black, back for their seventh year.

Led by Artistic Director Cassa Pancho, this company celebrates dancers of black and Asian descent, showcasing technique, precision and grace in specially commissioned pieces.

As part of their latest double bill, renowned British choreographer Cathy Marston, choreographs a new narrative ballet for the Company. Based on Can Themba’s South African fable The Suit, this is the first dance adaptation of the affecting short story.

Completing the evening is Arthur Pita’s Olivier nominated A Dream Within a Midsummer Night’s Dream, described as ‘charming and hilarious’ by Dance Europe magazine. The production mixes classical and contemporary to distil the essence of Shakespeare’s comedy, unfolding to an eclectic soundtrack that includes Eartha Kitt, Barbra Streisand and Yma Sumac. Performing it, ‘the company have never looked better’ (Independent).
