Vital and gripping, BLKDOG is Botis Seva’s haunting commentary on surviving adulthood as a childlike artist. A genre-defying blend of hip hop dance and free form antics, BLKDOG explores the inner battlefield of an ageing artist trying to retain his youth.
With music from long standing collaborator Torben Lars Sylvest and performed by Botis’ powerhouse company Far From The Norm, BLKDOG searches for coping mechanisms in the ultimate hunt for acceptance. Inspired by Sally Brampton’s Shoot The Damn Dog.
“Steeped in Hip Hop, Seva savoured bold, hunkered-down unison motion, where his dancers put across with electric timing” The Times
BLKDOG is co-produced by Far From The Norm and Sadler’s Wells London and supported by Arts Council England.
