“His style is an authoritative hybrid of ancient and modern...” Kelly Kellaway, The Guardian, 2016

North American Premiere
Akram Khan is irrefutably one of the most innovative dance artists in the world. His highly collaborative interdisciplinary works shift between classical kathak and contemporary dance. For his new solo, he tells the tale of an Indian colonial soldier in the First World War, expressing both the beauty and horror of the human condition. XENOS takes place on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology, where humanity stands in wonder and disarray. Don’t miss this final chance to see Akram perform as a dancer in a full-length work.
