Ballet Black’s 2016 programme delighted a new generation of dance fans with its “dash, daring and joie de vivre” (Guardian). In her latest mixed bill, Artistic Director Cassa Pancho commissions bold choreography once more, blending the classical and contemporary, narrative and abstract, for her ballet company comprising international dancers of black and Asian descent.

A four-hander characterised by intricate detail and propulsive energy, Captured ebbs and flows to the fiery emotion of Martin Lawrance’s edgy choreography, set to a Shostakovich string quartet.

Celebrated British choreographer Michael Corder, whose glittering versions of Cinderella and The Snow Queen have been seen across Europe, creates the evening’s second abstract piece, House of Dreams. South Bank Award winner, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa turns a popular fairy tale on its head as she gives Red Riding Hood a surprising twist!

Red Riding Hood is co-commissioned by the Barbican.

An extra £1 charge will be added to your order if you would like your tickets posted to you.
