Show Full Description
Whose war? Whose fire? Whose hand is this? In his final solo performance piece, choreographer and dancer Akram Khan returns to the White Light Festival with his poignant new work, XENOS. Meaning “stranger” or “foreigner,” XENOS explores the shell-shocked dreams of an Indian colonial soldier during the First World War. Combining classical Indian kathak and contemporary dance, Khan grapples with personal mythology, otherness, and the lucid reality of a world set aflame.
