BALLET BLACK TRIPLE BILL
Ballet Black return to York for a second year running, presenting a programme that contrasts dramatic and inventive storytelling in a lively showcase of modern ballets.
INGOMA (meaning song), created by company dancer and choreographer Mthuthuzeli November, is a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing. This premiere and Barbican co-commission portrays a milestone moment in South African history and imagines the struggles of black miners and their families in 1946, when 60,000 of them took courageous strike action.
Ballet Black reprise Martin Lawrance’s “wickedly intelligent” (The Guardian) PENDULUM – an intimate duet by Martin Lawrence, alongside the original and upbeat ballet CLICK!, by Scottish Ballet’s choreographer-in-residence, Sophie Laplane.
