Akram Khan, one of the UK’s most innovative and influential dance talents, returns to Sadler's Wells with his latest full scale contemporary ensemble work, Vertical Road.
Working with a world-class cast of performers from across Asia, Europe and the Middle East, with a specially commissioned score by long-term collaborator Nitin Sawhney, Khan draws inspiration from universal myths of angels that symbolise ‘ascension’ - the road between the earthly and the spiritual, the Vertical Road.
Visually inspiring and spiritually profound, Vertical Road draws on the performers’ different cultural interpretation of the human odyssey. In Akram Khan’s words: “in a world moving so fast, with the growth of technology and information, I am somehow inclined to move against this current, in search of what it might mean to be connected not just spiritually, but also vertically”.
