20:00 Xenos
Co-production of International Festival-School of Contemprorary Art "Territory" and Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre. Choreography: Akram Khan. 65 min (without interval). The title XENOS means 'stranger' or 'foreigner'. Akram and his world-class team of collaborators draw in this new solo work on the archives of the 20th century, unearthing the experience of colonial soldiers in the First World War. As Akram himself writes: "I will investigate specific questions that confront me more and more every day, like a shadow constantly following me, haunting me, whispering to me… Do we need to tell other people’s stories in case they vanish? Who are the 'other' people? Are stories of human journeys told, retold, and told again, so we can eventually learn from our mistakes? Who are 'we', a collective or many individuals? What makes us human? Are we still human?" Akram has brought together a stellar creative team. Along with dramaturg Ruth Little and acclaimed Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill, he teams up with set designer Mirella Weingarten, award-winning lighting designer Michael Hulls, costume designer Kimie Nakano, and composer Vincenzo Lamagna. Akram is joined on stage by five international musicians: percussionist B C Manjunath, vocalist Aditya Prakash, bass player Nina Harries, saxophonist Tamar Osborn, and violinist Clarice Rarity.
