Akram Khan, one of Britain’s most acclaimed choreographer and dancer, is right now hard at work with a new production for young audiences. We are proud to finally be able to share that the performance Chotto Xenos will have its Swedish premiere during Step 2020!
On March 18 and 19, the performance Chotto Xenos will be presented at Dergårdsteatern in Lerum. The award-winning choreographer Akram Khan has toured all over the world with his productions. Together with director Sue Buckmaster from London based Theatre-Rites, he has now re-imagined the piece XENOS to meet the young audiences. Lerum will be one of the first venues after the premiere and in Lerum the company will present school performances and an evening performance open to the public on March 19!
Chotto Xenos is set during World War 1, where we explore the lives and the fates of colonial soldiers. But the questions asked in the performance are just as relevant today: how does war begin? And how does it end? The answers depend on who is telling the story.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience a brand new piece by one of the world’s most acknowledged and respected choreographers!
