BLKDOG

Stage 2, Skellefteå

ABOUT ENTERING INTO THE ADULT WORLD

BLKDOG is a journey into the darkest room of the psyche. A deep dive into an inner battlefield and the hopelessness and fear a young person experiences before meeting adulthood. Scary and powerful, Botis Seva lets the audience be struck by its razor-sharp choreography and awesome dancers.

Botis Seva is the name of everyone's lips, a new name for the British starry sky. With bold movements and a raw appearance, he mixes hip hop with contemporary dance. Together with his company Far From the Norm, he has made himself known for his innovative choreography and many believe that he is pointing the way for a new form of contemporary dance.

BLKDOG embodies the ultimate pursuit of acceptance where the dancers wearing (protective? Hiding?) Padded hoods, jerk around the stage with a robotic timing and breathtaking accuracy. Inspired by Torben Lars Sylvest's pounding music, they seem digitally manipulated, albeit in sudden still imagesor caught in a fast-forward effect.

BLKDOG is an exciting work about despair - emotionally touching and with emotional movements, Far From the Norm impresses as they usher in a whole new era of dance.

BOTIS SEVA

Born in the south and raised in east London, Botis Seva was introduced to the dance through Tony Adigun and his company Avant Garde Dance. Seva started her dance career with the company and participated in most performances.

In 2009, Botis Seva founded his own dance company Far From The Norm. Together with the company, he experimented with hip hop while challenging conventions in the dance theater. Since then, Seva has received several awards and accolades, received commissioned assignments, played for sold-out houses and worked as a guest choreographer at, among others, the Scottish Dance Theater.

In 2017, Botis Seva was selected as an artist in Aerowaves17, which was the start of his international career.
