Dramaturge and writer Guy Cools will be in conversation with Akram Khan to discuss the publication of Cools’ new book, In-Between Dance Cultures: on the migratory artistic identity of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Akram Khan.

Belgian-Moroccan Cherkaoui and British-Bengali Khan are two of the world’s most prolific contemporary choreographers, and their artistic styles are largely built around their identity in-between dance cultures. Cools accompanied both and discusses their work within a larger critical debate on post-modern and post-migrant identity.

Offering a unique insight into their creative practices, Cools examines their choreographies and explores how they invent a new social imagery that fits with our experience of living in a globalised environment.
