Book Akram Khan's Bahok Tickets at the Sadlers Wells, London

About Akram Khan's Bahok

Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan’s fascinating cross-cultural collaboration, originally created with National Ballet of China, returns to Sadler’s Wells following a world tour.

Bahok, named after the Bengali word meaning ‘carrier’, explores the ways in which the body carries national identity and a sense of belonging. Khan’s dancers come from diverse cultures, traditions and dance backgrounds – Chinese, Korean, Indian, South African and Spanish – and this rich mix of both spoken and dance language pushes the boundaries of movement vocabulary.

Khan once again joins forces with long-time collaborator and multi award-winning composer Nitin Sawhney, who has created an original score for bahok.

Featuring five performers from Khan’s own kathak-contemporary company plus three classically-trained dancers, bahok is “both a fine advertisement for contemporary dance – and for the expansive qualities of multiculturalism” - THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
