Boy Blue Entertainment is an acclaimed dance company that is home to some of the UK’s most sought-after hip-hop artists. Its shows deliver thrilling and raw dance sequences, and have included a commission to perform as part of Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The group’s latest show, The Five & the Prophecy of Prana, is inspired by Japanese comic books. Set in Tokyo, it is a hip-hop, manga and martial arts tribute to the graphic novel. The story centres on five young troublemakers, who are drawn into a power struggle that has divided a secret group of warriors. Given a chance to redeem themselves in the ensuing battle to restore peace, their action-packed adventure becomes a celebration of camaraderie and the triumph of the human spirit.

The show is a stunning visual treat with projections turning the stage into frames from a Japanese comic book. The company’s artistic directors, choreographer Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy and composer Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, worked with manga artist Akio Tanaka to produce a show that the Evening Standard called “cleverly conceived and entertaining.”
