Jamaica’s national dance company returns to UK after a decade

Liverpool’s contemporary arts and community centre the Black-E will host the National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica’s first UK performance in ten years.

To mark Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence from the UK and the company’s own anniversary, the NDTC will perform on September 28 and 29 at the centre.

Bill Harpe co-founder of the Black-E, said: “I have wanted to bring the National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica to the Black-E for many years since the refurbishment of the Black-E and with the 50th Anniversary of the company, now is the time to do that and the public are in for a treat.

“I had the privilege of working with Professor Rex Nettleford, the founder of NDTC, while devising the programme of the opening celebrations of the Metropolitan Cathedral. He became an inspirational figure to me, a polymath and someone who will eternally have my respect. There will also be an exhibition at the Black-E dedicated to Rex’s life where I hope he will continue to influence others like he influenced me.”
