At the RomaEuropa Festival, the Italian premiere of Torobaka, the outcome of a brand new collaboration between Akram Khan and Israel Galván. The performance is not an ethnic exchange between traditions, an exercise in global dance, it is about creating something from a way of understanding dance – derived, certainly, from dancing kathak and flamenco – that harks back to the origins of voice and of gesture, before they began to produce meaning: mimesis rather than mimicry.
