Black Hole is a kaleidoscopic performance experience that uses movement, light and visual art. It is proposed to use the idea of the transformative environment of a black hole to create an atmosphere of mystery towards what it contains. Black Hole wants to engage the public in a hypnotic journey, deeply colored, with no exit. Three performers of African origin come together to create a trinity of vigor and Afro-futurism. Black Hole is the third creation of Shamel in the Black Series trilogy.
