Ballet Black

May 16, 2018


Audiences can’t resist the ‘joyously unpredictable’ (The Guardian) programmes danced by Ballet Black, back for their fifth year here at Nottingham Playhouse.

Led by Artistic Director Cassa Pancho, this company celebrates dancers of black and Asian descent, showcasing technique, precision and grace in specially commissioned pieces.

As part of their latest double bill, Cathy Marston, renowned for her expressive and beautifully crafted work, choreographs a new narrative ballet for the Company. Based on Can Themba’s South African fable The Suit, this is the first dance adaptation of the affecting short story.

Described as ‘charming and hilarious’ by Dance Europe magazine, the production mixes the classical and contemporary to distill the essence of Shakespeare’s comedy, unfolding to an eclectic soundtrack that includes Eartha Kitt, Barbra Streisand and Yma Sumac.
