Now in their 18th year, Ballet Black returns to the Playhouse by popular demand with a new triple bill featuring two premieres. Led by Artistic Director Cassa Pancho, recent recipient of the Freedom of the City of London for her contribution to diversity in ballet, Ballet Black celebrates dancers of black and Asian descent.

Ingoma (meaning song), is created by Mthuthuzeli November and is a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing. This ballet 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.

Pendulum is Martin Lawrance’s “wickedly intelligent” (The Guardian) and intimate duet made for the company in 2009. The programme is completed with CLICK!; an original, up-beat piece by Scottish Ballet’s choreographer-inresidence, Sophie Laplane.
