Marking his final performances as a dancer in a full-length piece, Akram Khan takes to the stage alongside five world-class musicians.

Khan revisits the myth of Prometheus in the context of the First World War, conjuring the shell-shocked dream of a colonial soldier. XENOS takes place where humanity stands in wonder and disarray, on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology.

A stellar creative team joins the journey, including fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist lighting designer Michael Hulls, dramaturg Ruth Little, Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill, German designer Mirella Weingarten, costumier Kimie Nakano and composer Vincenzo Lamagna.


Commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, and sponsored by COLAS
