Mamela... rehearsal gallery

Our Mixed Programme, which features brand new work from some of the UK's hottest new choreographers including Northern Ballet's Mlindi Kulashe, will be one of this autumn's highlights. 

Mlindi's piece Mamela... examines social norms and how society affects different individuals. He asked his family, friends and colleagues ‘how does society influence you as a person?’ and from those answers, went into the studio and created movement.

Take a look at rehearsals for Mlindi's choreographic debut.
