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.
— Akram Khan est incontestablement l’un des artistes les plus novateurs du monde de la danse. Faisant une large place à la collaboration, ses œuvres interdisciplinaires oscillent entre kathak et danse contemporaine. Évoquant l’histoire d’un soldat des troupes coloniales de l’Inde dans la Première Guerre mondiale, son nouveau solo exprime à la fois la beauté et l’horreur de la condition humaine. XENOS s’inscrit à la frontière entre Orient et Occident, passé et présent, mythologie et technologie, où l’humanité s’interroge et s’affole. Ne manquez pas cette dernière occasion de voir Akram Khan sur scène dans une œuvre intégrale.
