|Shooting-star Akram Khan is one of the most coveted and prodigious young choreographers on the global stage today. He is the embodiment of heritage and innovation, change and tension.
In only three years, the Kathak dancer and choreographer Akram Khan, born in London to Bangladeshi parents, has taken the contemporary dance scene by storm, drawing crowds to all the major venues where he has performed. In his new dance piece MA (which means mother in many languages on earth and in Hindi) the choreographer turns away from the cosmos to ponder the current situation of our planet. In this dance production for seven dancers accompanied by three Indian musicians and with supporting text by Hanif Kureishi, Khan is expanding his skills as a dancer and choreographer.
