Portrait de Botis Seva

In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is supporting London-based choreographer Botis Seva for his new creation.

Botis Seva is an Olivier award winning dance artist, choreographer and director working within the realms of Hip Hop, physical theatre, and contemporary dance. Botis’ distinct language has placed him at the forefront of Hip Hop dance theatre in the UK and internationally.

Whilst his foundation is in choreography, Botis’ 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, Botis’s focus is on making a societal difference and using his autobiographical experiences to drive narratives.

Previous partners and collaborators include Alexander McQueen, BBC Films, British Council, Channel 4, NDT 2, The Space and Vogue.

Botis was awarded the CHANEL Next Prize Award in 2021, a global award by the fashion house to catalyse innovation across arts and culture.
