Founded by Cassa Pancho in 2001, to encourage dancers of black or Asian descent to explore their talent for dance, Ballet Black has become one of the most celebrated dance companies of today.
This month, they’ll be presenting exciting new works by Kit Holder of Birmingham Royal Ballet and Will Tuckett of the Royal Ballet. Amongst these is The Second Coming, inspired by Yeats’s poem of the same name, interwoven with threads of Grimm’s fairytales. This production of darkness, humour and beauty is choreographed by the award-winning Mark Bruce.
There are two chances to see the performance at Cambridge Arts Theatre, on 13 or 14 April, 7.45pm. Tickets from £15.
