BLACK HOLE: Trilogy And Triathlon

Choreography: Shamel Pitts

BLACK HOLE is a kaleidoscopic performance art experience using movement, light and visual art. Although the title derives from the cosmic phenomenon of a Black Hole, it is not a work on explaining the science of it. More so, it proposes to make use of the idea of the transformational environment of a Black Hole in order to create an atmosphere of mystery towards what it encompasses; what it can absorb. BLACK HOLE engages an audience in a way that it condenses the experience into a deeply colorful hypnotic journey without exit. The work researches and shares a performance art odyssey, in which three gifted black artists (all of African descent) unite to create a trinity of vigor, afro-futurism and embrace. BLACK HOLE is Shamel Pitts’s third creation of the Black Series.
