Telling stories of race and culture through street dance

Co-commissioned by Brighton Dome

Botis Seva’s latest Hip Hop theatre production is a journey underlined with a resistance to change.

Amidst the oppression of leadership, a lone woman yearns for faith as she leads a wandering community through shifting passages of time. With a celestial blend of percussion and guttural sounds, music bleeds effortlessly into an undulating style of movement performed by Far From The Norm. Feathered costumes give glimpses of warriors transcending above their former identities, whilst piercing light interrupts the stage as a pitiless testing ground, reminding us of a higher power that carves our reality.

Until We Sleep displays the heaviness of hope against the burden of responsibility, yet within the conflict, there exists a softness that breathes life into existence.
