Double Bill

Forming the first half of the bill, Ingoma (meaning song) is a specially commissioned piece by company dancer and choreographer Mthuthuzeli November, which imagines the struggles of black South African miners in 1946 ? the same year in which 60,000 of them took courageous strike action. Through a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing, the performance by Ballet Black's artists portrays a milestone moment in the country's history. To follow, a light-hearted and engaging narrative ballet by choreographer Luca Silvestrini, another original work for a mesmerising ensemble whose dancers are of black and Asian descent.
