For the dance curation of this year’s Darbar Festival, Akram Khan and Mavin Khoo were driven by the intent of providing audiences the opportunity to observe, learn and be inspired by great artists.

Akram Khan’s creative mythology and personal practice is testament to his classical training much of which was under the guidance of Padmashri Guru Pratap Pawar. Akram has invited his guru to Sadler’s Wells to sit in conversation with Mavin Khoo to delve deep and offer audiences an insight into his life’s work, training Akram as his young disciple and his experience of continuing to perform as a mature dancer.

Mavin Khoo will facilitate the talk and will lead Akram’s guru to demonstrate elements from the Indian classical dance form Kathak, alongside Indian classical musicians Pandit Vishwa Prakash and Pandit Sanju Sahai.
