Commissioned by the London Sinfonietta this new quintet created to the score “Related Rocks” by Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg continues Akram Khan’s quest to build bridges between the worlds of contemporary dance and the Indian Classical dance form Kathak. Delicate intricate gestures combine and contrast with broader sweeping movements to create a unique language that is both fascinating and exhilarating to watch.
