Boy Blue - associate artists of The Barbican

Boy Blue, as a collective artistic voice, was founded in 2001 by Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy MBE and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante – friends, collaborators and instigators.  East London, and the hip-hop community that developed there, was and remains an integral part of their creative and cultural inspiration.

The spirit in which Boy Blue was formed came from the 3 E’s - Education, Enlightenment and Entertainment and the belief in these values, combined with a dedicated work ethic, energy, and curiosity propelled the company onwards.  

Anything was possible.

Since 2001, many people have contributed to the growth of Boy Blue and the value system in which we work today and in June 2020, we became a registered Charity – a testament to the Company’s worth.

Boy Blue works towards empowering UK-based hip hop artists to make, create, perform and teach on a global level.  Our multi-generational, multi-cultural nature is an energising and radical force. We are working towards a thriving inclusive hip-hop dance theatre scene.

And you can join our movement by supporting us.  Collectively we can make amazing things happen.
