Boy Blue

Dancers with arms in air

An exhilarating new dance and film production from Boy Blue that captures the voices of young people, fuelling the rebels of the future through music, choreography and spoken word. 

The younger generation are often denied a voice in politics, but if they had had one, how might it make a difference? REBEL aims to articulate an artistic response to challenging questions around cultural identity, what it means to belong to a community and how we deal with our feelings of powerlessness. 

It is a project of hope that presents young people’s experiences and perspectives with ambition and honesty as we look to the future. 

Performances will last 30 minutes and take place at 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm.

Members of Boy Blue will be performing unique hip-hop dance routines between thier performances in the Theatre on the FreeStage, 1–1.15pm and 3.45–4pm.

Produced by Boy Blue and the Barbican in association with Sky Arts.
