West Coast Premiere
Acclaimed choreographer Akram Khan’s signature style draws upon techniques and vocabularies from Kathak and modern dance. For 'Vertical Road' he has assembled a cast of performers from across Asia, Europe and the Middle East for a courageous and ambitious work set to a specially commissioned score from composer Nitin Sawhney, Khan’s long-term collaborator and fellow cultural pioneer.
'Vertical Road' draws inspiration from the Sufi tradition and beloved Persian philosopher-poet Rumi.
