Ballet Black: Double Bill 2018

Ballet Black: Double Bill 2018

Details

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.

This is followed by 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).

Our ticket prices increase as the theatre fills. We always recommend booking early to secure the best seats at the best price.
