Sky-high ambition undergirds Mykki Blanco's self-titled studio debut released last year. The clearest statement of that purpose?—The grandiose music video for her single “High School Never Ends,” in which a heartbreaking Shakespearean epic, burning with themes of romance, betrayal and racial violence, unfurls over the course of 10 minutes. Bolstered by her endlessly compelling stage presence, the scale of these songs mounts to even grander heights live. She performs here at the Met Breuer's multi-disciplinary "Theater of the Resist" series alongside movement artists Sidra Bell Dance.
