BEHIND THE SCENES ON BOTIS SEVA’S NEW CHANNEL 4 DANCE FILM

Random Acts returns to Channel 4 this summer with a new series of short films including Reach, which will be broadcast at midnight on Tuesday 7 August.

Director Billy Boyd Cape collaborates with dancer and choreographer Botis Seva’s hip-hop theatre collective Far From The Norm to explore themes of love, abandonment and fatherhood in this emotional dance film commissioned by Sadler’s Wells.

Botis Seva, Artistic Director of Far From the Norm, said: “The film was a very different and new experience for me. I’m grateful that I got to collaborate with Billy Boyd Cape. He is an amazing director with a creative vision that complements my practice. I’m proud of the short film, it touches on something I care deeply about and I’m excited to share it.”
