Ballet Black: Then Or Now
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Celebrate the end of the 2023 Ballet Black: Pioneers season with a ‘made for film’ screening of their latest film Then Or Now.
Then or Now is a powerful classical ballet set against the backdrop of Adrienne Rich’s poetry and accompanied by violin. William Tuckett’s ‘spellbinding’ ★★★★ (The Guardian) choreography explores the joys of submitting to the freedom of guilt through a series of movements.
The film screening will be followed by a post-show discussion with the members of the Artistic Team and Ballet Black.
