H.O.H seemed to catch the press’ attention this week as it featured an interview with artistic director, Botis Seva in the Evening Standard. 

Botis Seva talks about his new outdoor piece H.O.H commissioned by Without Walls, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival & Norfolk & Norwich Festival. He talks about his hopes that H.O.H’s “content will make you think and encourage a conversation”.

Botis later goes onto mention last weeks events as England played in the Euro’s. “It seemed like it was pre-decided, or that Russia wanted to fight England as we were seen as a nation that would fight back. We have to talk about the issue and not just let it happen.”

Ahead of H.O.H performing as part of Sadler’s Wells on the Waterfront Stage at Latitude Festival (15th & 16th July) Katy Arnander of Sadler’s Wells said: “We have supported Botis for a number of years. He is an artist we are really excited about, creating a unique hip-hop theatre style that tackles social and political issues in a compelling way.”
