Boy Blue
Michael "Mikey J" Asante, creative direction and music
Kenrick "H2O" Sandy, choreography
Lee Curran, lighting design
Ryan Dawson Laight, costume design

Olivier Award-winning East London company Boy Blue returns to Lincoln Center with its electrifying dance-theater workBlak Whyte Gray following last fall's critically acclaimed, sold out White Light Festival performances of the U.S. premiere. Driven by founders Michael "Mikey J" Asante and Kenrick "H2O" Sandy, Boy Blue creates virtuosic performances rooted in hip-hop music and dance. For Blak Whyte Gray, the company's first full-length abstract piece, a charged electronic score, bold staging, and powerful imagery call forth a deeply-rooted cultural awakening on themes of oppression, identity, and transcendence. Among other honors, Blak Whyte Gray was nominated for Best Modern Choreography in the 2017 Critics' Circle National Dance Awards.

There will be a post-performance talk with Kenrick "H2O" Sandy on Friday, August 2.

Yang Liping Contemporary Dance
Yang Liping, chief choreographer and director
Tim Yip, visual director/set and costume design

In this U.S. premiere from China's Yang Liping Contemporary Dance, the astonishing Under Siege portrays the climactic battle between the Chu and Han armies in 202 B.C., an epic struggle that changed the course of Chinese history. Celebrated choreographer Yang Liping employs martial arts, contemporary and Chinese folk dance, gymnastics, and hip-hop to stage her version of the age-old story of love, war, passion, and betrayal that has been passed down through generations. Tim Yip (Oscar winner for his production design of the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates an intensely beautiful visual landscape and costumes that complement Yang Liping's melding of ancient traditions with modern sensibilities.

Pre-performance lecture by Renqiu Yu on Thursday, August 8, at 6:15 pm in the Bruno Walter Auditorium, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

Major endowment support for contemporary dance and theater is provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

Endowment support for the Mostly Mozart Festival presentation of Under Siege is provided by the Blavatnik Family Foundation Fund for Dance.

The Mostly Mozart Festival presentation of Under Siege is made possible in part by the Harkness Foundation for Dance.
