WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Winner of the 1999 Jerwood Award, Akram Khan is a rising star on the contemporary dance scene. This fantastically skilled dancer and choreographer performs both Asian traditional and western contemporary dance.
Marking his final performances as a dancer in a full-length piece, Akram Khan takes to the stage alongside five world-class musicians. Khan revisits the myth of Prometheus in the context of the First World War, conjuring the shell-shocked dream of a colonial soldier. XENOS takes place where humanity stands in wonder and disarray, on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology.
