Free From Form: Botis Seva at the Laban Theatre


Up-and-coming choreographer Botis Seva brings the critically acclaimed InNoForm to the Laban Theatre this month.

Performed by his company Far From the Norm, InNoForm is a politically charged experience that interrogates ideas of convention. The audience is thrown into a disarray of experimental theatre interwoven with classical music and a spattering of 'mobbish' chants. 

Botis comments:

InNoForm is an exploration of my style, a statement of my ethos: to challenge audiences. The piece is called InNoForm because I feel that I have no form essentially. I am not a trained dancer so I want to stress that to me, the form doesn’t matter as long as you can understand the emotion at the core of the movement. I want to challenge the audience by making them feel.’

Josephine Leask of LondonDance called InNoForm a work of ‘theatrical complexity’ that ‘shakes us out of our dance-audience comfort zone.’

Botis Seva is a freelance dance artist, previously a performer with Avant Garde Dance. He founded Far From the Norm in 2009, and the company has since performed at Breakin’ Convention at Sadler’s Wells, The Place, and San Francisco’s International Hip Hop DanceFest. Botis and the company are currently developing a new work for performance at Trinity Laban this autumn, Woman of Sun, as part of the Greenwich Dance & Trinity Laban Partnership’s Compass Commissions programme.
