Watch: Untethered: Royal Docks x Boy Blue – Millennium Mills
Millennium Mills has stood for nearly 100 years, a consistent icon in an everchanging landscape. Many lives have passed through the building but the structure has always been the same. Untethered explores how the structures that inform how we live our lives haven’t been updated whilst individuals and sub cultures have changed and evolved in order to be relevant. A solo dancer breaks free from the constraints of the past to move into the future.
Boy Blue, an east London based hip hop dance theatre company, explore ideas and questions around London’s identity and history, challenging the old ways with the new in a solo piece filmed in the historic Millennium Mills. With musical composition by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, choreography by Kenrick ‘H20’ Sandy and creative direction from them both.
The film is commissioned by the Royal Docks Team and is now available to watch online as part of Open House Festival.
