East London hip-hop dance theater company Boy Blue presents Blak Whyte Gray (2017), a fierce, bold, and affecting trilogy that traces a path from oppression to freedom through dance. Created by choreographer Kenrick “H20” Sandy and composer Michael “Mikey J” Asante MBE, the Olivier Award-nominated production was a smash hit in the UK, resonating with audiences for its political bite, lean storytelling, and inspiring message of transformation and renewal. The movement is a daring hybrid of popping, krump, and African dance, set to a multilayered electronic score. “Exceptionally tight…a powerful piece of hip-hop theater” (The New York Times).
