Ballet Black

Tue 23 – Wed 24 Apr 2019

Celebrating their 18th year, Ballet Black return to Bristol Old Vic (The Suit / A Dream Within A Midsummer Night’s Dream) with their dramatic and inventive storytelling in a lively showcase of modern ballets.

Ingoma (meaning song) is a specially commissioned piece by Company dancer and choreographer Mthuthuzeli November, which imagines the struggles of black South African miners in 1946 – the same year in which 60,000 of them took courageous strike action. Through a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing, the performance portrays a milestone moment in the country’s history.

It’s followed by a light-hearted narrative ballet by renowned choreographer Luca Silvestrini – another original work for the mesmerising ensemble whose dancers are of black and Asian descent.
