Boy Blue

Blak Whyte Gray

‘It’s pure physical poetry – a joy to watch’ Anna Winter, The Stage

Fierce and affecting, this galvanising hip-hop dance triple bill reflects themes of identity, oppression and transcendence. A personal response by Boy Blue’s founders to their experiences and observations of the world, Blak Whyte Gray is set to the resonating sounds of a multi-layered score. The powerful choreography and staging make for an image-rich production with political bite.

After its premiere in 2017, the triple bill earned an Olivier nomination for Best New Dance Production.

★★★★★ ‘Rich and melancholy joy … great dance theatre’  Luke Jennings, Observer

★★★★★ ‘The synchronized movement [will] thrill you to the core’ The Scotsman
