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

For her latest programme, Artistic Director Cassa Pancho brings us two original works: The Royal Ballet’s Olivier Award-winning choreographer Will Tuckett’s ‘Then Or Now’ blends classical ballet, music and the poetry of Adrienne Rich to ask the question: in times like these, where do we belong? Mthuthuzeli November contemplates the purpose of life in ‘The Waiting Game’, an exciting and energetic work about the meaning of life, infused with a dynamic soundtrack featuring the company dancers’ voices.

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.

The performance runs from Thursday 26th —Sunday 29th March 2020.
