BLKDOG FAR FROM THE NORM
Touring the UK and internationally since 2020, BLKDOG is Botis Seva’s Olivier award-winning Hip-Hop dance theatre production, that poetically explores coping mechanisms and the parallels between childhood and adulthood.
Vital and gripping, BLKDOG is Botis’ haunting commentary on surviving adulthood as a childlike artist. A genre-defying blend of hip hop dance and free form antics, in the inner battlefield of an ageing artist trying to retain his youth.
With a pounding, brooding score the music adds layers of meaning highlighting the inner working of the characters’ minds. The music has grown from a long standing collaboration with Torben Lars Sylvest and includes a mixture of original music and words performed by Botis’ powerhouse company Far From The Norm and guests. Tom Visser’s lighting brings a dark smog of disillusion as the choreography delves into the underbelly of life, while the hooded caps and padded costumes by Ryan Laight echo the protection and comfort of childhood. BLKDOG searches for coping mechanisms in the ultimate hunt for acceptance.
