OUTWITTING THE DEVIL

DANCE

Kylie Minogue, Juliette Binoche and Florence + The Machine. Those are just some of the artists that celebrated and award-winning director, dancer and choreographer Akram Khan has been collaborating with. He is well-known for having created a section of the beautiful London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, and since founding Akram Khan Company in 2000, the company has reached international recognition as well as artistic and commercial success for its original and courageous work.

The performance Outwitting the Devil is an outstanding and visually beautiful tale about life, death, friendship and hope, inspired by the epic of king Gilgamesh from the ancient far east. The performers, aged 25 to 68 and from different cultures all over the world, are all exceptionally skilled, with backgrounds in different dance techniques like bharata natyam, contemporary and hip-hop.
