Until the Lions is based on a tale in the classic Indian epic Mahabharata. It takes up the story of Amba, daughter of King Kashi. With themes of betrayal and vengeance, and live musical accompaniment, Akram Khan’s intense choreography offers the charms of a journey into the unknown. → part of the Festival d’Automne, with the Théâtre de la Ville

The show

As a child, Akram Khan was involved with Peter Brook’s legendary production of Mahabharata. Thirty years later, the choreographer has plunged back into his childhood memories with a version by the poet Karthika Naïr. The result is Until the Lions, a choreographed tale of rare intensity.

Using a circular set, Akram Khan forms a trio with the dancers Ching-Ying Chien and Christine Joy Ritter, and revives his script of tragic imbroglio. Four musicians and singers breathe a harmonious flow into these trials, mad races, and staggering lifts. Arabic chants, Indian percussions, old French songs, all these sources are interwoven in this enveloping, melodic piece.
