Global star Akram Khan returns to the Holland Festival with a Dutch premiere. Until the Lions is a completely new work. Adapting from Until the Lions: Echoes from the Mahabharata by poet Karthika Naïr and inspired by the story of Amba in particular, the 41 year old dancer and choreographer focuses on the changing body: from young to old, and from man to woman. For a long time, gender and sexuality were taboo subjects for Khan, who received a traditional upbringing by his Bengali parents in England. Now he’s growing older, he has decided to address these issues, using his own, inimitable brand of dance: a mix of classical Indian kathak and modern styles. Don’t miss this chance to see the legendary Khan dance on stage.
