Ballet Black - Triple Bill

Ballet Black has been delighting a new generation of dance fans with ‘dash, daring and joie de vivre’ (The Guardian) for over 15 years. Blending the classical and contemporary, narrative and abstract, this company of international dancers of black and Asian descent returns to the 2017 Festival with an all-new triple bill.

Characterised by intricate detail and propulsive energy, Captured ebbs and flows to the fiery emotion of Martin Lawrance’s edgy choreography for four dancers, set to a Shostakovich string quartet. Celebrated British choreographer Michael Corder, whose glittering versions of Cinderella and The Snow Queen have been seen across Europe, creates the evening’s second abstract piece, House of Dreams, featuring the music by Debussy. And to close, South Bank Award winner Annabelle Lopez Ochoa turns a popular fairy tale on its head as she gives Red Riding Hood a surprising twist…
