Akram Khan Company - Until The Lions Tickets London

Originally created to be performed at The Roundhouse in 2016, Akram Khan now brings his theatrical Until the Lions to Sadler’s Wells for the first time in October 2020. In his very last performance of this epic work, Khan will be joined by an international cast of four musicians and two dancers on stage.

Blending classical Indian kathak movement with contemporary dance, Khan tells the story of Amba, a great, unsung heroine of the Mahabharata. The show is adapted from Karthika Naïr’s book ''Until the Lions: Echoes from the Mahabharata'', and is a poetic retelling of the Sanskrit epic that explores notions of time and gender in a battle for liberty and justice.

Khan reunites with some of his regular collaborators, including lighting designer Michael Hulls, visual artist Tim Yip, dramaturg Ruth Little and writer Karthika Naïr.
