15 May REDD
All life is balance. With happiness and light must come darkness. This autumn, Boy Blue premiere a new dance theatre production about those irreversible moments in life and how they can affect us in different ways.
Audiences are invited to take a leap into the void, as nine dancers begin an introspective journey exploring how, after trauma, we may find inner peace.
Intrigued by how the mind seeks to put things in order (from the Gaelic verb ‘redd’), Boy Blue contrast a lo-fi hip-hop score with powerful choreography.
