Announcing… Cycles

Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy

The Olivier award-winning dance theatre company returns to the Barbican stage with a world premiere.

Cycles is movement at its most fluid, distilled and skilled. Resolute and unapologetic, Boy Blue's latest production is a tenacious exploration of hip hop dance in all its forms. Experience the connection between the movement on stage and the rhythm, groove and bounce of the music, as nine powerful dancers fill the space in what feels like unending motion.

Founded by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy, the company – a Barbican Artistic Associate – has earned critical acclaim and Olivier Award nominations for their work.

They have wowed audiences from New York to Taiwan and recently co-created the smash hit Free Your Mind in Manchester.
