Information

Island Movements is a short ballet that tells the story of Windrush, exploring the impact of this generation’s experiences on their families, communities and society.

Beginning with a young Caribbean woman who volunteers to support the war effort in WW2 Britain, this moving tale follows her and her family through their life in the UK to the current day.

Darren Panton, the first black British dancer to graduate from the Royal Ballet School and Patrick Williams, who danced at Alvin Ailey and the Paris Opera developed the show. Greta Mendez MBE is choreographing.

Featuring original music by the ground-breaking Kinetika Bloco, the story is driven by a pulsating mix of reggae, calypso and contemporary black British music. The show will be followed by a Q&A with the dancers and creators.

If you’ve never seen a ballet before, then this is the one for you!
