Akram Khan Company celebrates 10th Anniversary with new work Vertical Road at Sadler's Wells
“An extraordinarily talented choreographer, one who can conjure near-miracles from the human form” The Independent
Following the widely acclaimed Gnosis ‘The most enthralling programme of dance this year’ (The Observer) in April, Akram Khan’s dazzling choreography returns to the Sadler’s Wells stage with new work Vertical Road on Tuesday 5 to Saturday 9 October 2010.
The multi-award winning Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan is renowned for his cross cultural collaborations with everyone from Anthony Gormley to Juliette Binoche and Kylie Minogue. For Vertical Road he joins forces with fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and long-time collaborator Nitin Sawhney who adds a specially commissioned score.
Featuring a world-class cast of performers from across Asia, Europe and the Middle East, Vertical Road draws inspiration from universal myths of angels that symbolise ascension - the road between the earthly and the spiritual.
The Akram Khan Company celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year.
Free post-show talk for ticket-holders on Wednesday 6 October with Akram Khan and Nitin Sawhney.
