Far From the Norm - MAMA
The latest work from Olivier award winning choreographer Botis Seva and Far From The Norm, his international touring hip hop collective that strives to make honest, relevant and needed performance work that reflects their generation, deconstructing street dance vocabulary, challenging perceptions of Hip Hop and creating work that empowers ordinary people. Their work is original and fearless and invites debate on social political issues and the contemporary world.
Through generational stories of colonised bodies and questions of what race and culture mean in today’s world, Mama mixes the beauty of chaos with the quietness of the human soul. It plunges audiences into an unforgiving world fraying at the seams; a world where dark colonial secrets start to see the light, where once loved communities crumble.
We build, we destroy, we hate, we love, we try, and we continue, but some of us don't forget.
