Xenos, the latest solo by Akram Khan, one of the most celebrated and respected dance artists, will also be the last chance to admire the British-Bangladeshi choreographer on in a full-length production. 

Accompanied by an ensemble of five musicians performing an original score designed by Vincenzo Lamagna, Khan takes his blend of kathak and contemporary dance and carries us to through the struggles of a colonial soldier during the First World War. The human condition is embodied in the figure of a dancer whose body is in a state between mythology and technology, becoming an instrument of war. 

Questioning what makes us human, XENOS is a memento mori for our own times of violent estrangement from one another and our world.
