Ballet Black, a company for international dancers of black and Asian descent, collaborates with three bold and inventive choreographers to present an irresistible trilogy of narrative and abstract dance.

At the centerpiece, Christopher Hampson’s Storyville is the bittersweet fable of Nola, a farm girl who falls prey to unscrupulous characters and worldly desires in 1920s New Orleans, set to the haunting music of Kurt Weill.

British-Trinidadian Artistic Director Cassa Pancho has attracted a loyal following for her classically trained troupe, reinvigorating ballet with an indomitable energy and inspired versatility as well as promoting original work. The programme also includes two newly devised pieces; To Begin, Begin by Christopher Marney, fresh from McQueen, and Cristaux, a duet by Arthur Pita, who previously choreographed a hit version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Ballet Black’s eight-strong ensemble.

Suitable for ages 7+
