Ballet Black - Double Bill

Ballet Black - Double Bill


Audiences can’t resist the ‘joyously unpredictable’ (The Guardian) programmes danced by Ballet Black [], now back for their seventh year here in Leeds.

As part of their latest double bill, renowned British choreographer Cathy Marston (Northern Ballet’s _Jane Eyre _ []and forthcoming_ Victoria []_) has created a new narrative ballet and the first dance adaptation of 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_. Mixing classical and contemporary dance to get to the heart of Shakespeare’s comedy and performed to an eclectic musical soundtrack, ‘the company have never looked better’ (The Independent).
