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.
This mixed programme features The Suit, choreographed by Cathy Marston, who is renowned for her expressive and beautifully crafted work. Inspired by Can Themba's South African fable of the same name, Marston's ballet is set to music brought together by composer Philip Feeney. Completing the evening will be a new ballet, to be announced.
