Until the Lions  creation


Until the Lions, a new piece for three dancers and a group of live musicians by Akram Khan, plunges into the fresco of Mahabharata through the book by Khartika Naïr Until the Lions – Echoes from the Mahabharata. Surrounding a tragic story of hindered love, the choreographer who’s also the performer, enhances their talent as a storyteller through a majestic and scathing dance. A performance that’s completely swept away by the urgency of the movements and the music.
