How do we keep making art amidst negative feedback, when the more you create, the more is said about you? The expressive new work of Botis Seva, founder of Far From The Norm, revolves around the role of criticism and our response to it in the process of creation.

A new voice for NDT, Seva is at home in the realms of hip-hop, physical theatre and contemporary dance, and continuously reinvents his approach to dance and creativity. His experiments with form, structure and theatrics result in an intricate and emotional language of movement.

"As humans and as artists, we must go back to the real reason we started making work and move away from caring about what someone says. Instead, we should focus on the bigger purpose: I believe we are here to shine a light in the darkness of the world." - Botis Seva



Olivier award-winning dance artist, choreographer and director Botis Seva (United Kingdom) was introduced to dance at age 15. He briefly performed with Avant Garde Dance as a dancer, before pursuing a career in choreography at 17 years old, choosing to chart his own path outside of the conventional structure. He founded his own company, Far From The Norm, has created works for Scottish Dance Theatre and Sadler's Wells, among others, and has won various prizes.


Seva works within the realms of hip hop, physical theatre and contemporary dance. His distinct movement language has placed him at the forefront of hip hop dance theatre, both in the United Kingdom and internationally. He experiments with form, structure and theatrics, continuously recreating his approach to creativity in live as well as digital performances. Seva’s focus is on making a societal difference and using his autobiographical experiences to drive narratives.
