Sadlers Wells presents the latest dynamic production from Akram Khan Outwitting the Devil, which will showcase at the venue from September 28th for three performances only. This is an epic dance piece that fuses the classical along with the contemporary as it delves into ritual and remembrance in the midst of our ever-changing planet. 

Outwitting the Devil draws on ancient narrative from the Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh – one of the oldest works of literature in the world. The king Gilgamesh has destroyed a legendary cedar forest and killed its guardian and must now be punished by the gods. The kings dear friend Enkidu, a wild man that he has tamed, is taken from him, and Gilgamesh must now confront both the truth and sorrow of human mortality and pass them over into history, so that they become a fragment among the broken remnants of human memory and culture.
