Director Billy Boyd Cape collaborates with choreographer Botis Seva and his hip-hop theatre collective Far From The Norm in this emotional dance film. In the face of fatherhood and responsibility a man deserts his new-born child to find his own independence and freedom.
On his journey the audience peers beyond his mind and into the battle of his soul as he deals with his determination, heartache and love.
REACH was commissioned by Channel 4 Random Acts and Sadler’s Wells.
