An Evening of Hip Hop with Blak Whyte Gray | 8/2

from 50.00

Join us on Friday August 2nd for a truly mind-blowing performance by East London dance company, Boy Blue, returning to NYC as part of a special encore engagement after their sold out debut here last fall. Plus dinner before the show and a talk-back with company members afterwards.

Blak Whyte Gray is an electrifying dance-theater work with bold hip-hop choreography and a multilayered score that moves from driving electronics to African-influenced beats. Called “pure physical poetry” by the Stage and “dance with the force of an uprising” by the NY Times, Blak Whyte Gray pulses with physical virtuosity and a fierce political bite.

We will meet at 5:30pm for drinks & apps at Greek restaurant, Ousia and will have the chance to learn more about the performance and its creation during a talk-back with Choreographer Kenrick “H2O” Sandy and dancer Margo Jefferson after the show.

All tickets include a seat with the group in row M of the Orchestra. Full experience tickets include shared appetizers + 1 glass of wine or beer per person. Any additional food or drink can be purchased separately at the restaurant.

More about the production:

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.

Fueled 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.
