Led by Artistic Director Cassa Pancho, Ballet Black 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.

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.
