*Excited* I just received a newsletter update that Ballet Black are airing some of their performances online - each one will be available for seven days then the new one will be posted. They're also airing Beginner Adult Ballet Classes on their instagram page @originalballetblack, starting Sunday 26th April, 12pm.

For anyone interested, the Programme:

- Now to 25th April: House of Dreams (2017)

House of Dreams is a sparkling quartet exploring themes of love and loss set to the delicate music of Claude Debussy with costume designs from Ballet Black’s long-term collaborator, Yukiko Tsukamoto.


- 26th April to 2nd May: Captured (2012)

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


- 3rd May to 10th May: Ingoma (2019)

Ingoma (song) is by company dancer and choreographer Mthuthuzeli November, who has received nominations from the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards (Best Emerging Artist) and the Olivier Awards (Best New Dance Production).


Ingoma is a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing. Ingoma portrays a milestone in South African history and imagines the struggles of black South African miners and their families in 1946 – when 60,000 of them took courageous strike action, and is inspired by Song of the Pick, a painting by South African artist, Gerard Sekoto (1913-1993), and the poem, Blue Head (2018) written specially for this ballet by Asisipho Ndlovu Malunga.
