Through generational stories of colonised bodies and questions of what race and culture mean in today’s world, Botis Seva’s Mama mixes the beauty of chaos with the quietness of the human soul.

Performed by Botis’ company Far From The Norm, the dancers blend Street dance forms with undulating movement sulking through Tom Visser’s shards of light, illuminating a collage of stories. Torben Sylvest’s eclectic score shifts between soundscapes and voice, drawing you into a landscape, slipping between past and present, whilst Ryan Dawson-Laight’s feathered, armour-like costumes echo the nonsensical route to freedom.

Mama 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.
