Synopsis


Fierce, bold and affecting, this galvanising hip-hop dance triple bill reflects themes of identity, oppression and transcendence in a performance of pure physical poetry.


The time is right to ask questions, to break free from the inner tension of a system that isn't working, and to emerge on the other side to an awakening - a return to roots, a celebration of culture.


As the first full-length abstract work by Boy Blue's founders, Michael 'Mikey J' Asante and Kenrick 'H2O' Sandy, Blak Whyte Gray is personal, a response to their experiences and observations of the world.


Set to the resonating sounds of a multilayered electronic score, the powerful choreography and staging make for an image-rich production with political bite.


After its premiere here in January, the show earned an Olivier nomination.
