Ballet Black


‘For unflagging energy and unstoppable spirit, Ballet Black is phenomenal.’ (The Independent on Sunday)


The innovative combination of classical tradition and cutting-edge choreography, which won Ballet Black the Dance Europe Award 2010 for Outstanding Company, provides a wonderful showcase for choreographers and dancers of black and Asian descent.


This evening’s performance begins with Sextet by Christopher Hampson – six very short sections for six very energetic dancers. Two shorter dances follow – the pas de deux Human Revolution by Robert Hylton which combines locking technique with classical ballet, then And Thereafter by Raymond Chai – a modern ballet quartet danced to a score by Arvo Pärt and JS Bach. The programme closes with Da Gamba - a twenty minute work for the full company choreographed by Henry Oguike – his first work for dancers en pointe.

Tickets £15 (Students £12)


DIRECTOR’S CHOICE Hit Me! The Life and Rhymes


of Ian Dury Seabright Productions


Jeff Merrifield’s play captures Ian Dury at three points between his peak in the 1980s and his death in 2000. Publicly, Dury was a cheeky chappie and purveyor of saucy lyrics. Privately, he was a flawed maestro wrestling with demons and disability. Featuring some of his most famous songs performed live, including Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Reasons to be Cheerful, this show is a celebration of - and love letter to - the singer- songwriter who produced some of the wittiest lyrics of the punk rock era.


‘A bracing blast of pop’s Noël Coward. Compelling.’ (Daily Telegraph)
