Outwitting the Davil

Receiving its UK premiere at Sadler's Wells is Akram Khan's highly-acclaimed production exploring ritual and remembering in the midst of our ever-changing planet, Outwitting the Devil. Like Kaash, based on the pantheon of Hindu gods, and Until the Lions, re-imagining the experience of one of Mahabharata's female protagonists, Outwitting the Devil draws on the ancient narrative of Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh - one of the world's oldest works of literature. In this powerful opus, the gods punish a young King Gilgamesh for destroying a legendary cedar forest and killing its guardian Humbaba. Weaving the narrative and design is Khan's close collaborators: dramaturg Ruth Little, composer Vincenzo Lamagna, rehearsal director Mavin Khoo, costume designer Kimie Nakano, and writer Jordan Tannahill. They are joined by lighting designer Aideen Malone and visual designer Tom Scutt, alongside a cast of six international dance artists. Part of Carnival of Shadows.
