BLACK HOLE is a kaleidoscopic performance art experience using movement, light,
and visual art.
Although the title is derived from the cosmic phenomenon of a Black Hole, it is not a
work on explaining/sharing the science of it.
More so, it proposes to use the idea of the transformational environment of a Black Hole
to create an atmosphere of mystery towards what it encompasses;
What it can contain in it.
BLACK HOLE proposes to engage 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 the African diaspora) unite to create a trinity of vigor, afro-futurism, and
BLACK HOLE is Shamel’s third creation of the “Black Series”
Hence the sub-title “Trilogy”
“Triathlon” is a marathon in three parts.
It’s A Race.
