Ballet Black

October 19, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Since forming in 2001, Ballet Black has been delighting a new generation of dance fans with its ‘dash, daring and joie de vivre’ (Guardian).

This show is no exception with bold choreography which blends the classical and the contemporary. This exciting ballet company comprising international dancers of black and Asian descent has commissioned three works by some of the most celebrated choreographers of this generation: Ludovic Ondiviela, Martin Lawrance and South Bank Award winner Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

Dopamine (you make my levels go silly) is about love, lust and passion with an original score created by acclaimed British composer, Fabio D’Andrea. Captured is filled with edgy choreography providing propulsive energy that ebbs and flows. The final piece Red Riding Hood takes its namesake fairy tale and turns it on its head with a surprising twist.

‘A revolutionary dance company’ Observer

Please note Ballet Black have announced a change to the original printed programme. The first piece in the programme House of Dreams has been replaced with Dopamine (you make my levels go silly).
