Ballet Black: Double Bill

For her latest programme, Artistic Director Cassa Pancho brings us two original works: The Royal Ballet’s Olivier Award-winning choreographer William 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? Recent Olivier nominee 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.
