Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre
26 October 2015
Following acclaimed performances in 2014, Ballet Black, Cassa Pancho’s company of black and Asian classically trained dancers, return to Leeds with a stunning new Mixed Programme at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre from 20 – 21 November 2015.
The Company is delighted to present a triple bill of exciting works including a revival of Will Tuckett’s 2009 (The Royal Ballet) ballet Depouillementand a new pas de deux from Kit Holder, To Fetch a Pail of Water. Completing the programme, award-winning choreographer Mark Bruce makes the Company’s newest narrative ballet Second Coming, inspired by Yeats’ poem of the same name and also the obscure ambiguities of Grimms’ fairytales. Bruce presents a hybrid fairytale filled with beauty and darkness, irony and humour, and the content of the human heart.
Founded in 2001, Cassa Pancho’s Ballet Black is an award-winning, neo-classical ballet company dedicated to diversifying classical ballet. The Company is made up of eight international dancers of black and Asian descent. The entirely original repertoire covers a broad spectrum of ballet, from classical work to highly contemporary pieces. Since 2001, they have built a varied repertoire from the best emerging and established choreographers including Liam Scarlett, Shobana Jeyasingh, Martin Lawrance, Richard Alston, Christopher Hampson, Christopher Marney and Javier De Frutos.
