Curated by Akram and our producer Farooq Chaudhry, Portraits in Otherness will present the solo work of four international artists, each of whom encompass the ethos and philosophy of Akram Khan Company. Two of the four, are Company dancers, Ching-Ying Chien (Taiwan) and Joy Alpuerto Ritter (USA/Germany), accompanied by two guest artists Dickson Mbi (UK) and Maya Dong (China).
This innovative platform is a new venture for the Company and seeks to transfer the intangible values of our legacy to a new generation of dance artists. It will showcase two double-bill solo programmes presented in the same week as Akram’s last full-length solo XENOS at Sadler’s Wells.
Keep an eye out on our social media channels to follow their developments as we gear up for their performances!
Portraits in Otherness will premiere at Sadler’s Wells in London from 5 to 8 June 2018 – tickets for general public go on sale on Monday 26 February.
