"BLKDOG" by shooting star Botis Seva tells of the time of growing up, of anger and depression, but also of humour and moments of great tenderness. He dedicates this work to people without a voice, says the young London choreographer, and in his work he asks existential questions about repression, violence and early traumatisation. In a very personal way, he stages experimental hip-hop with his company with the eloquent name Far From The Norm. The first version of "BLKDOG" was created in 2018, and the piece has been evolving ever since. "I don't want there to be a 'finished' version," says Seva. The Guardian cheered: "... a deeply moving work". The title, by the way, is reminiscent of Winston Churchill, who referred to his depressive phases as "Black Dog".
