Good Youtes Walk

Far From the Norm

Dance, Theatre

“We are divided by our experiences and our values but, change is coming.”

This chaotic and frenzied Hip Hop dance theatre work explores how divided we are as a nation. Due to the recent surge of global events including the Covid pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement heightening, now more than ever we are a nation divided.

Good Youtes Walk unravels how the youth of today are reclaiming their future and want to address the divide by creating unity and empathy that transcends race, class, gender and geography.

About Far From the Norm

Original, vital and fearless, Far From The Norm has carved a reputation as a highly skilled and experimental hip hop collective. Led by Artistic Director Botis Seva, their burning scrutiny of public preoccupations, politics and the contemporary world fuels their work and demands a response.

Far From The Norm’s portfolio transcends live theatre performances, outdoor shows, immersive experiences and film.
