|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until November 20, 2021

Akram Khan is one of the most innovative choreographers in the world, drawing on the Indian classical dance form kathak to create contemporary movement. Khan has most recently choreographed for the English National Ballet, and has worked with Ballet Boyz, and Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan. In 2012 his choreography was featured in the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.

Khan makes his Kennedy Center debut with this visceral solo work that has toured worldwide, offering U.S. audiences a final opportunity to see the “work of defining greatness” (The Observer). Shifting between kathak and contemporary dance, Khan conjures the shell-shocked dreams of a colonial soldier in World War I and explores the chaos and emotions of humankind during war.

Tickets $25-$99, available at https://www.kennedy-center.org/whats-on/explore-by-genre/dance/2021-2022/akram-khan-company-xenos/?promocode=431406
