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 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.

glo and The Goat Farm Arts Center launched Tanz Farm in 2012 to instigate risk-taking, and expand boundaries and support for international artists sharing work in Atlanta.
