Ballet Black: Pioneers

Tuesday 31th October - Thursday 2 November

Now in their 21st year, Cassa Pancho’s Ballet Black is excited to present award-winning choreographers, Will Tuckett and Mthuthuzeli November in a double bill of new and original work in Ballet Black: Pioneers.

 

Will Tuckett’s Then Or Now, originally created in 2020, blends classical ballet, music and the poetry of Adrienne Rich to ask the question: in times like these, where do we each belong?

“…the piece feels above all like a call for respect across any and all divides.”The Telegraph,2021

The second piece on the bill is devised by award-winning choreographer, Mthuthuzeli November.Nina: By Whatever Means, is inspired by the artistry and activism of Nina Simone. November weaves a skilful picture of Simone’s turbulent and influential life to take us on an emotional and empowering journey.
