As Yet Untitled by The Illustrious Blacks
On Monday April 8th 2019, see the Illustrious Blacks in "As Yet Untitled" at Hi-Arts!
This will be a musical prequel to their show 'Hyperbolic'. With inspiration from artists like Prince, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Boy George and George Clinton, The Illustrious Blacks will rave and fuse music, dance, theater, funk, disco, culture and fashion in this technicolor-ed explosion.
Their infectious DJ set on Okayplayer’s Facebook live went viral and has put them on the global radar of emerging musical artists. They turn night into day, with a feast of aural and visual delights. The real life married couple are not only co-pilots on their artistic voyage, but are united in their fantastical journey through life. In this iconic performance, they dive into the complexities of their relationship.
The Illustrious Blacks have been featured at packed venues such as Central Park Summerstage (NYC), Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater (NYC), Output (NYC), Le Poisson Rouge (NYC), Performance Space New York (NYC), Brooklyn Bowl (NYC), C’mon Everybody (NYC), Afterglow Festival (Mass) and even found themselves touring to Bali, Indonesia.
