bahok - T737874570

bahok is the eagerly anticipated collaboration between Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist [Akram Khan] and the [National Ballet of China]. After creating intimate duets with [Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui] (zero degrees) and [Sylvie Guillem] (Sacred Monsters), [Akram Khan] now works with nine dancers, as five performers from his own kathak-contemporary company go head-to-head with four classically-trained dancers from the [National Ballet of China]. bahok, named after a Bengali word meaning ‘carrier’ explores the ways in which the body carries national identity and a sense of belonging. Khan’s dancers come from diverse cultures, traditions and dance backgrounds - Chinese, Korean, Indian, South-African and Spanish - and this rich mix of both spoken and dance language pushes the boundaries of movement vocabulary. Khan once again joins forces with two long-time collaborators, acclaimed writer [Hanif Kureishi] and multi award-winning composer [Nitin Sawhney], who will create an original score for bahok.
