BLACK HOLE schafft eine kaleidoskopische, performative Erfahrung und verbindet Bewegung, Licht und visuelle Künste. Obwohl sich der Titel von dem kosmischen Phänomen des schwarzen Lochs ableitet, geht es nicht um dessen wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund. Vielmehr nehmen die Performenden die Idee der sich beständig wandelnden Form des schwarzen Lochs auf, um eine mystische Atmosphäre um das Geheimnis, was es wohl in sich bergen mag, hervorzubringen. BLACK HOLE nimmt die Zuschauenden auf eine Reise mit, bei der Wahrnehmungen zu einem farbintensiven, hypnotischen und ausgangslosen Erlebnis kondensieren. Die Arbeit eröffnet eine Odysee der Performancekunst, auf der drei schwarze Künstler zusammenkommen um eine Trias aus Lebenskraft, Afro-Futurismus und Umarmung zu schaffen und mit dem Publikum zu teieln.  

BLACK HOLE ist Shamel Pitts’ dritte Produktion aus der Triologie „black series“, ein Marathon in drei Teilen („Thriathlon“).

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 african descent) unite to create a trinity of vigor, afrofuturism, and embrace.

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.

SHAMEL PITTS ABOUT BLACK HOLE
INTERVIEW TO MICHIGAN QUARTERLY REVIEW

Black Velvet is the second work in a triptych: Black Box, Black Velvet, and the up and coming Black Hole. Can you give some background about the pieces?

SP: Each of the works has a huge listening and research towards what is inside of us, between us, and around us. I am constantly searching for personal truths and testaments and how they meet as well as re-imagined ideals and universal sentiments. Black Hole will be the most colorful work inside of this black series.

ARTS ATL Review on US Premier Of BLACK HOLE at The Rhodes Theater in Atlanta:
In a way, the trio seemed to disappear into the atmosphere only to become a part of everyone who experienced the performance. As an end cap to Pitts’ Black series, BLACK HOLE was both a unique and familiar odyssey: simultaneously unifying and obliterating, becoming and unbecoming, on a path that felt more circular than linear.
