…so much of the appeal of this company lies in the talent it has allowed to blossom. These are individuals who you want to watch” The Guardian
Celebrating twenty years, Ballet Black is delighted to present two new works in 2022. Black Sun by acclaimed South African choreographer Gregory Maqoma (Vuyani Dance Theatre) featuring an original score by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante (Boy Blue) is a work that draws energy from the sun and the moon giving rise to descendants of ancestors. These forces only meet to blacken, allowing us to draw from their powers as we prepare for life after life.
…an irresistibly optimistic piece of work, occasionally funny, and at times downright fascinating… the spirit of can-do optimism radiating from the stage was quite euphoric” The Telegraph on Say It Loud
The second ballet in this double bill is choreographed and directed by Ballet Black’s Founder and Artistic Director, Cassa Pancho. Say It Loud is a ballet created Pancho and the BB Company artists that charts the struggles and inspiration behind the formation of this exciting and pioneering company. From the uncomfortable reasons behind the Company’s existence to the frenetic, creative energy that has seen them create an enviable repertoire and build a reputation as a necessary part of the British ballet industry.
It is compelling and propulsive…completely spell-binding” The Reviews Hub on Black Sun
