Dean Blunt: musician, artist, dramaturge.
The Hype Williams live wire has, of course, dabbled in drama before, staging new play Lord Knows following a show in Switzerland last year. As Dummy report, Blunt will premiere a new work, Im Just Passin Thru To Show Some Love, at London’s ICA in April. The piece is described as a “scripted stage performance by artist and Hype Williams member Dean Blunt”. Following an open casting call, actors Mendeeces LaCore, Siobhan Denny, and J-Star Valentine will all appear.
Im Just Passin Thru To Show Some Love will debut on April 11. In similar fashion, Blunt will exhibit a selection of “mixed material works” at Hackney’s SPACE gallery from March 22-24. On a more conventional tip, Blunt’s debut solo LP The Redeemer will arrive on May 1 through Hippos In Tanks.
