Akram Khan Company
The Akram Khan Company is UK based with a truly global focus. Khan's choreography is a dazzling fusion of classical Indian katak and western contemporary dance - dance that is bold, uninhibited, intelligent, inventive and challenging.

Following its Olivier Award in 2019 for Outstanding Achievement in Dance, Akram Khan returns to the stage, alongside five world-class musicians, to present the final UK performances of the critically acclaimed solo, XENOS. Shifting between kathak and contemporary dance, Khan conjures the shell-shocked dream of a colonial soldier in the First World War. Meaning ‘stranger' or ‘foreigner', XENOS takes place on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology, where humanity stands in wonder and disarray. A stellar creative team includes Sadler's Wells Associate Artist; lighting designer Michael Hulls, dramaturg Ruth Little, playwright Jordan Tannahill, designer Mirella Weingarten, costume designer Kimie Nakano and composer Vincenzo Lamagna. Part of Carnival of Shadows.
