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.
The second ballet in this double bill, Say It Loud, is choreographed and directed by Ballet Black‘s Founder and Artistic Director, Cassa Pancho, a ballet created by 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.
All performances at Oxford Playhouse are now being sold to full capacity seating, in line with government and UK Theatre guidance. We would like to reassure our audiences of their safety when visiting Oxford Playhouse.
