Dalston Ballet Performances & Exhibitions
Dalston Ballet Company
Devising work for live performance and film.
Think Ballet Russe crossed with the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, for our post-contemporary times!
Dalston Ballet creates work for film and live performance.
By dance Dalston Ballet mean any movement, in any vocabulary and any genre; from physical theatre, street dance, mime, martial arts, untutored, etc.
‘Through dance we can say what cannot be said’
Dalston Ballet is a Rainbow tribe of race, genders, age, abilities and rage. Professional and non-professional artists work together examining archetypes, construction of persona and alter egos, and the nature of story telling.
Dalston Ballet is a space for devising performance inspired by avant garde music, the human body, costume, the individual, movement, ideas and light.
As well as Artist’s motivations, and the production and means of consumption, notions of art as a tool to generate new perspectives, provoke discourse and as a catalyst for change and collaboration are navigated. Why do we live the way we do? What to change?
If the aim is social engineering we must understand the properties of the material we are using, the nature of humanity.
Specially commissioned electronic scores, created and devised in collaboration with composers and choreographers, explore tension between truth and artifice, the individual and the persona, vulnerability and confidence.

A Noh heroine, guide to the underworld, to reveal the shadow and dichotomy
of union and fertility, and the Rainbow tribe gathers, conscious of strength and innocence and power, and the elegant aliens do course through, as the chanteuse in the twighlight world, one last song, before it all floats away… oblivion.
