The award-winning dance company presents a dynamic mixed programme from leading choreographers.

Most recent performance

There are currently no scheduled performances of Ballet Black. It was last on stage 10–14 February 2015 as part of the Winter 2014/15 season.


Since the founding of Ballet Black in 2001, Cassa Pancho’s company of black and Asian classically trained dancers has been much acclaimed for its virtuoso and bravura dance, and in 2012 won the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award for Best Independent Company.

They make a welcome return to the Linbury Studio Theatre with a new mixed programme that demonstrates to the full the company’s talent and versatility. The programme includes two world premieres: To Fetch a Pail of Water by Kit Holder and Second Coming by Mark Bruce, inspired by W.B. Yeats’s poem of the same name. Will Tuckett’s 2009 work Depouillement completes the programme.
