London-born Akram Khan, winner of a Critics' Circle National Dance Award and a Time Out Live Award, is renowned for developing his own 'contemporary Kathak' style. Khan and Company will perform two evening-length U.S. premieres - an engagement made possible by the programming partnership between New York City Center & Sadler's Wells, London.
In bahok, Akram Khan works with nine dancers, as five performers from his own company go head-to-head with four classically-trained dancers from the National Ballet of China. zero degrees is a remarkable collaboration between four of today's most respected artists whose styles, when brought together, result in a spellbinding piece of dance.
