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. A new solo work by Akram Khan, marking the great dancer's final performances in a full-length production. XENOS means ?stranger' or ?foreigner'. It confronts the tragedy of the First World War through the eyes of a shell-shocked Indian soldier in the trenches, forced to fight in a conflict that is not his. Around 1.5 million Indian men ? mostly peasants from northern India ? were mobilised during the War. Forced into service by the obligations of empire, they fought and died in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Or sometimes returned home, often mutilated and traumatised, to find their stories later suppressed after rejection of colonial rule ? thereby becoming strangers in their own land. Expressing tales of loss, hope and redemption, XENOS explores our connections with our past and our future, and stares unflinchingly at the beauty and horror of the human condition.
