XENOS generates “an unforgettably vivid and poignant image of the Great War’s apocalyptic human wastage.” – The Telegraph
“Everything about ‘Xenos’ is powerful, not least its message about those whose war stories haven’t been remembered” – Time Out London
“Khan’s performance […] is as astounding as it is powerful” – The Times
XENOS, the first event of the 2018 season, opened at Sadler’s Wells on Tuesday night. The final full-length solo of acclaimed dancer and choreographer Akram Khan, XENOS, explores the experience of an Indian colonial soldier during the First World War.
The run at Sadler’s Wells is now sold out, but there are still tickets available for the performances at Edinburgh International Festival from 16 – 18 August. Book tickets here.
