Katara Drama Theatre - Bldg 16
An artist talk will be held prior to the show at 7:00pm .
Following its highly successful world tour, Akram Khan Company, for the 1st time ever in Qatar, presents Vertical Road. Pre-show discussion, inspired by the content and artistic process of the work, will be held in the Drama Theatre in Katara.
Vertical Road is Akram Khan’s latest contemporary ensemble work, for which Khan has assembled a cast of very special performers from across Asia, Europe and the Arab World. With a specially commissioned score by a long-term collaborator, composer Nitin Sawhney, Vertical Road draws inspiration from the Sufi tradition and the Persian poet and philosopher Rumi. Exploring man’s earthly nature, his rituals and the consequences of human actions, Vertical Road becomes a meditation on the journey from gravity to grace.
The Vertical Road regional tour and associated activities are part of the British Council’s “New Work-New Audiences” arts project which allows audiences in the region and the UK to experience the power of arts in developing cultural understanding, trust and dialogue.
