Akram Khan Company : Until the Lions at the Roundhouse – 9th to 24th January 2016

Until the Lions is a brand new, full-length production from the exciting and award-winning choreographer and dancer Akram Khan. Until the Lions is  Khan’s  first production on the iconic Roundhouse stage and the show is considered one of his most spectacular works.

Adapting from poet Karthika Naïr’s book Until the Lions, an original reworking of the epic Mahabharata, Khan uses kathak 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. This dramatic new work explores themes of gender and sexuality, and changes that time forces on the body.

Until the Lions sees  Khan reunites with some of the artistic collaborators behind his hugely successful DESH including writer Karthika Naïr, visual artist Tim Yip and lighting designer Michael Hulls.
