Black Ballet: Northern Stage
Ballet Black, a company for international dancers of black and Asian descent, collaborate with three bold and inventive choreographers to present an irresistible trilogy of narrative and abstract dance.
As the centrepiece, Christopher Hampson's Storyville is the bittersweet fable of Nola, a farm girl who falls prey to unscrupulous characters and worldly desires in 1920s New Orleans, set to the haunting music of Kurt Weill.
The company's programme also includes two newly devised pieces: The Begin, Begin by Christopher Marney (fresh fromMcQueen) and Cristaux, a duet by Arthur Pita, who previously choreographed a hit ballet version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
