Outwitting the Devil
Stirring classical and contemporary, Akram Khan Company's latest production, Outwitting the Devil
examines ritual and remembering. 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. Weaving the narrative and design are the Company's close collaborators: dramaturg Ruth Little, composer Vincenzo Lamagna, rehearsal director Mavin Khoo, costume designer Kimie Nakano, and writer Jordan Tannahill who are joined by lighting designer Aideen Malone, visual designer Tom Scutt and an ensemble of six international dance artists
