Akram Khan’s ultime solo, XENOS, marks his final performances as a dancer in a full-length piece.
In this work commissioned for the First World War centenary, Akram gives voice to the shell-shocked dream of a colonial soldier in the First World War. XENOS reveals the beauty and horror of the human condition in its portrait of an Indian dancer whose skilled body becomes an instrument of war. Akram’s movement language shifts between classical kathak and contemporary dance. He is joined onstage by five international musicians: percussionist B C Manjunath, vocalist Aditya Prakash, bass player Nina Harries, violinist Clarice Rarity, and saxophonist Tamar Osborn.
