A world in flux, a need for change: This is the driving force behind Blak Whyte Gray, an electrifying dance-theater work from Olivier Award–winning East London company Boy Blue. Rooted in pure hip-hop with a fierce political bite, brilliant stage imagery, and a driving electronic music score, Blak Whyte Gray pulses with physical virtuosity.

“Dance cut to its essence.”
– The Observer (U.K.)
“Pure physical poetry.”
– The Stage (U.K.)
