Ballet Black Returns to York Theatre Royal

Ballet Black: Pioneers

York Theatre Royal, 23 June, 7.30pm

Now in their 21st year, Cassa Pancho’s Ballet Black returns to York Theatre Royal with a double bill of original ballets in Ballet Black: Pioneers on June 23.

This new double bill features ballets from two of Ballet Black’s best-known, award-winning collaborators, Will Tuckett (Depouillement, 2009, Orpheus, 2011) and Mthuthuzeli November (Ingoma, 2019, The Waiting Game, 2021).

Will Tuckett’s Then Or Now, originally created in 2020, blends classical ballet, music and the poetry of 

Adrienne Rich to ask the question: in times like these, where do we each belong?
