Ballet Black: Double Bill




As part of the Barbicans latest bill, Cathy Marston, renowned for her expressive and beautifully crafted work, choreographs a new narrative ballet for all of Ballet Blacks artists, based on Can Thembas South African fable The Suit.

Completing the evening is Arthur Pitas A Dream Within a Midsummer Nights Dream, a heady piece of dance-theatre for which the Portuguese choreographer earned an Olivier nomination following its premiere. Described as a sexy, cheeky frolic by, the production mixes the classical and contemporary to distil the essence of Shakespeares comedy, unfolding to an eclectic soundtrack that includes Eartha Kitt, Barbra Streisand and Yma Sumac. Performing it, the company have never looked better (Independent).
