Ballet Black returns to the Playhouse with a bold and stunning new triple bill of dances having delighted Oxford audiences with their programme here last summer.

Full of fiery emotion and edgy choreography, Martin Lawrance’s Captured is brought to life by four dancers, set to a Shostakovich string quartet.

French choreographer, Ludovic Ondiviela, presents Dopamine (you make my levels go silly), a beautiful pas de deux about love, lust and passion with an original score created by acclaimed British composer, Fabio D’Andrea.

The evening is concluded with a new take on a wellloved story as Red Riding Hood is given a surprising twist by South Bank Award winner, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

Duration: 90 Minutes with interval
