Thursday 25th October, 7.30pm
Cassa Pancho’s Ballet Black celebrates dancers of black and Asian descent, showcasing technique, precision and grace in specially commissioned pieces.
As part of their latest double bill, renowned British choreographer Cathy Marston choreographs a new ballet based on Can Themba’s moving fable The Suit. This is the first dance adaptation of the affecting short story.
Completing the evening is Arthur Pita’s Olivier nominated A Dream Within A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The production mixes classical and contemporary to distil the essence of Shakespeare’s comedy, unfolding to the eclectic sounds of Eartha Kitt, Barbra Streisand, Yma Sumac and more.
Age guidance: 12+ due to a scene in The Suit that is unsuitable for younger children and which some audience members may find upsetting, as it deals with suicide.
The evening contains adult themes.
