Vital and gripping, BLKDOG is Botis Seva’s haunting commentary on surviving adulthood as a childlike artist and it’s returning to the Jerwood DanceHouse after being our last sold out performance before we closed our doors in 2020.
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.
