Drawing from a fusion of gospel, folk, jazz, blues and classical music, singer and songwriter Nina Simone wove together diverse musical styles to create her rebellious artistic voice.  Her lyrical boldness and political bombast highlighted the intersection of her personal and professional identities. 

Inspired by her creative legacy, BLEUE draws upon Simone’s soulful musical stylings, transforming her world into a full-length evening of movement and live music. Through original arrangements by Gernot Bernroider and Chanda Rule, BLEUE celebrates the eclectic movers of Bianca Johnson & Dancers while paying homage to the “High Priestess of Soul.”
