Performing Arts - Dance | March 3 | 5-7 p.m. |  Zellerbach Hall

 Akram Khan, Cal Performances

 Cal Performances

Revered dancer, choreographer, and theater artist Akram Khan is known for physically demanding, visually spellbinding solo productions that combine Indian kathak with modern dance,
and mine personal and cultural histories in works of sublime storytelling. XENOS is Khan’s final solo creation before his planned retirement as a performer, and reveals the beauty and horrors of the
human condition through the myth of Prometheus, from the perspective of an Indian soldier recruited to fight in the trenches of WWI for the British Crown. “Xenos” means “stranger” or “alien” in Greek, and the work explores the soldier’s alienation as he is trapped between two cultures in the colonial system.
