The world in flux, a mood for change: the artists of Boy Blue Entertainment give expression to experiences of contemporary life through the prism of a compelling new dance production.
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.
Fuelled by an emotional energy, this triple bill pairs the concentrated physicality of select hip-hop dance styles with the rhythmical groove of music and moves evoking Africa. Progressing from story-driven hits such as The Five & the Prophecy of Prana, Boy Blue’s founders Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante inject Blak Whyte Gray with an unexpected abstract quality, revealing a different side to the company’s personality.
