Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, Black Black return to the Linbury Theatre with a double bill of new work, and in signature style you’ll be hard pressed to leave without your heart feeling a little fuller than before.

Needless to say, there is a warm familiarity in going to see a Ballet Black show and this latest programme is no different.
