“As in many myths, the female characters are often the unsung heroes, the figures of strength and imagination and endurance. It is their unsung stories in particular that still haunt me today.” – Akram Khan

Award-winning choreographer and dancer Akram Khan presents his latest full-length production, Until the Lions. In this partial adaptation of poet Karthika Naïr’s book Until the Lions: Echoes from the Mahabharata, an original reworking of the epic Mahabharata, Khan uses kathak and contemporary dance to tell the tale of Amba, a princess abducted on her wedding day and stripped of her honour, who invokes the gods to seek revenge.

In an epic theatrical piece, Khan explores the notion and the physical expression of gender, bringing together some of the stellar artistic team behind his solo DESH: writer Karthika Naïr, visual artist Tim Yip, lighting designer Michael Hulls and dramaturg Ruth Little.

Khan performs himself alongside two remarkable female dancers, Ching-Ying Chien and Christine Joy Ritter, and four live musicians: singers Sohini Alam and David Azurza, percussionist Yaron Engler and composer Beautiful Noise (Vincenzo Lamagna).
