We are all travellers. We are all voyagers. Born into this world, embodied, we can only move forwards. But we are also all carriers. We are all ‘bahok’. We carry with us our genetic and cultural inheritance, our experiences, our dreams and aspirations.
In his new company piece bahok, world class choreographer Akram Khan brings together nine dancers from very diverse cultural backgrounds: Chinese, Korean, Indian, Slovakian, South-African and Spanish. In one of this globalised world’s transit zones, they come together. They try to communicate, to exchange their stories, their memories of home.
In his exploration Akram Khan is accompanied by composer Nitin Sawney, who put music to the stories these bodies on stage carry with them. The Akram Khan Company invites you to join them on their journey.

“An exhilarating evening of humour, charm and extraordinary tenderness.”
