Boy Blue follow the international triumph of Blak Whyte Gray with a dance theatre production about those irreversible moments in life and how they can affect us in different ways.
All life is balance. With happiness and light must come darkness. 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 in this new work, which can be seen here first. Founded by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy, the company – a Barbican Artistic Associate – earned an Olivier Award nomination for Blak Whyte Gray, which was presented twice in London before touring nationally and internationally, wowing audiences from New York to Taiwan.
