The critically acclaimed Ballet Black strive to honour the traditions of classical ballet while breaking new ground with cutting-edge choreography. Now an essential part of the classical ballet landscape, the company is the perfect showcase for dancers of black and Asian descent, providing them with a platform on which to perform and practise their craft. Unsurprisingly, Ballet Black attracts dancers, choreographers and designers from around the world.
The company are delighted to present a triple bill of new work with exciting ballets from two of Britain's best choreographers, Christopher Marney (Gothenburg Ballet, New Adventures), and Martin Lawrance (Richard Alston Dance Company). Award-winning dance maker, Arthur Pita (Showboat, The Metamorphosis) creates Ballet Black's newest narrative ballet.
