Akram Khan Choreographer

TORO  creation


In 2014, Akram Khan and Israel Galván created together the unforgettable Torobaka. With fire and light. An energizing duet by two dance athletes. The mysterious meeting of two traditions, so distant and so close : an heir of kathak, dance coming from North India, and a flamenco genius. Specially for this opening weekend, Akram Khan adapts a new form and dances in a solo version alongside the TOROBAKA musicians inspired by this exceptional adventure.
