Cassa Pancho’s Ballet Black return to the Festival Theatre for a moving and inspiring double bill by Olivier Award-winning choreographers, Will Tuckett and Mthuthuzeli November.
The Company, now in their 21st year, present Then Or Now (South Bank Award nominee for Best Dance Production) created by Will Tuckett, composed by Daniel Pioro and set to the poetry of Adrienne Rich, which asks, at times like these, where do we each belong?
The second piece on the bill is devised by award-winning choreographer, Mthuthuzeli November. 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.
