The Five & The Prophecy of Prana

Having been described by the press as ‘a mash-up of superhero comics, Japanese manga and kung fu movies’, it’s no surprise to learn that award-winning hip-hop dance company Boy Blue Entertainment’s new show The Five and the Prophecy of Prana is a somewhat epic affair.

Featuring everything from evil Emperors to secret warrior groups, Boy Blue Entertainment’s Artistic Directors Kenrick ‘H20’ Sandy and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante worked with the likes of Japanese manga artist Akio Tanaka and award winning video animation studio Yeast Culture alongside the monks from the Shaolin Temple Warrior School to create this electrifying show.

In this podcast, Mikey J discusses the genesis of the fast-paced show, his love of film and comics, and the company’s special brand of hip-hop theatre.
