Since forming in 2001, Ballet Black has been delighting a new generation of dance fans with its ‘dash, daring and joie de vivre’ (Guardian).

This show is no exception with bold choreography which blends the classical and the contemporary. This exciting ballet company comprising international dancers of black and Asian descent has commissioned three works by some of the most celebrated choreographers of this generation: Martin Lawrance, Michael Corder and South Bank Award winner Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

House of Dreams is an intimate pas de deux set to the colourful works of Debussy. Captured is filled with edgy choreography providing propulsive energy that ebbs and flows. The final piece Red Riding Hood takes its namesake fairy tale and turns it on its head with a surprising twist.
