I feel that confluence is a journey of our various works created over a decade, that we have slowly and at times, painfully and yet humorously journeyed through.
– Akram Khan

The highly acclaimed Confluence fuses Sawhney’s music with Khan’s unique blend of classical kathak and contemporary technique. Exploring how the independent stories of these two kindred spirits converged, Confluence offers the opportunity to re-visit their collaborative work together (Kaash, zero degrees and bahok) but it is more than simply a retrospective of their previous pieces. It is an exploration of the nature and fabric of creativity itself.
