EX­PLO­SIVE DANCE

Exclusively British - - TRAVEL NEWS -

For a mas­ter­class of hip hop dance, head to the Bar­bican the­atre for the triple bill, Blak Whyte Gray by Boy Blue. Each bill show­cases dif­fer­ent styles with po­lit­i­cal ref­er­ences to colo­nial­ism and slav­ery. Whyte takes us from en­er­getic body pop­ping to re­strained ro­botic moves. Whilst in Gray, bod­ies be­come weapons as ex­ag­ger­ated krump­ing turns dance into a bat­tle­ground to African chants. As Blak mashes up hip hop with clas­si­cal bal­let, con­tem­po­rary dance and tai chi, bod­ies shake with free­dom to pound­ing beats. Blak Whyte Gray is on from 12 to 15 Septem­ber 2018, Bar­bican The­atre, Bar­bican Cen­tre, Silk Street, Lon­don, EC2Y 8DS, 0845 120 7511, bar­bican.org.uk
