Botis Seva (born and based in London) is a dancer, choreographer and director working within the realms of hip hop, physical theatre and contemporary dance. Seva’s distinct language has placed him at the forefront of hip-hop dance theatre in the UK and internationally. Whilst his foundation is in choreography, his practice experiments with form, structure and theatrics to continuously reinvent his approach to creativity, whether that is in live or digital performance. Borrowing techniques from film, text, art and other dance languages, Seva’s focus is on making a societal difference and using his personal experiences to drive storytelling in his choreography. He was awarded an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production (2019) and has won first place at the Copenhagen International Choreography Competition (2016) and Choreography 30 (2016) in Hannover.
