Ballet Black 2016

  • Show Information

Ballet Black’s return to Exeter Northcott sees them collaborating with three bold and inventive choreographers to present an irresistible trilogy of narrative and abstract dance. As the centrepiece, Christopher Hamspson’s Storyville is the bittersweet fable of Nola, a farm girl who falls prey to unscrupulous characters and wordly desires in 1920s New Orleans, set to the haunting music of Kurt Weill.

The programme also includes two newly devised pieces; To Begin, Begin by Christopher Marney, fresh from McQueen, and Cristaux, a duet by Arthur Pita, who previously choreographed a hit version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for Ballet Black’s eight-strong ensemble.

“packed with dash, daring and joie de vivre”

“A small, sparky company with plenty of ambition and swagger”
