One of the world’s most distinctive choreographers, Akram Khan is fascinated with blending different cultures and diverse artistic disciplines. Khan’s new full-evening work, Vertical Road, is inspired by the Sufi tradition and the Persian poet and philosopher, Rumi. Surging, hypnotic movement explores man’s rituals and earthly nature - a meditation on man’s journey from gravity to grace. With a cast of eight remarkable dancers from Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, Vertical Road is enthralling in its bold theatricality.
