Sound at Central with Black British Ballet

Fri 21st Jun 2024, 7:00pm

Location: Nottingham
Venue: Nottingham Central Library

Sound at Central is a monthly music and performance cabaret night at Nottingham Central Library.

FABRIC is delighted to work with Nottingham Central Library for the June edition of Sound at Central. We will have special guests Black British Ballet coming to showcase their touring show, Island Movements: a short ballet telling an epic tale of a family from the Windrush generation. Beginning with a young Caribbean soldier in World War II Britain, this moving tale follows him and his family through their life in the UK up to the current Windrush scandal.

Featuring original music by the groundbreaking Kinetika Bloco driving the story with a pulsating mix of reggae, calypso and contemporary Black British music.

Choreographed by Darren Panton, who was the first Black British dancer to graduate from the Royal Ballet School and Patrick Williams, who danced for Alvin Ailey and the Paris Opera.

Performing alongside them are genre-blurring Jazz quartet, The Jazz Bastards, DJ Bradley Jam and DJ Hemulen of Nottingham’s Jamcafé with their signature eclectic grooves and tropical beats, and more artists to be announced soon.

Suitable for ages 16 (if accompanied by an adult) and over.
