Channel 4 Random Acts – REACH

 

rushesgradestills_1.55.9

Sadler’s Wells has partnered with Random Acts to create original films from three distinctive dance artists, to coincide with their new commissions for the Reckonings stage production. Reflecting a variety of dance styles from post-modern dance to contemporary African and hip hop theatre, the films are informed by themes such as race representation, gender and identity.

Director Billy Boyd Cape collaborates with Botis Seva and Far From The Norm, to explore the themes of love, abandonment and fatherhood. On a journey of independence, we discover a man’s inner struggle of his mind versus his soul in this emotional dance film. Billy Boyd Cape has directed music videos for FKA Twigs, Pussy Riot and Pendulum, as well as commercial and artistic short films.
