Akram Khan Company – Chotto Xenos

Audio described in-house.

How does war begin? And how does it end? It depends on who is telling the story.

Adapted from Akram Khan’s award-winning solo XENOSChotto Xenos is a captivating dance production that takes young audiences and families back in time. Shining light on our present and future, this new work explores the often forgotten and untold stories of First World War colonial soldiers.

Reimagined by Sue Buckmaster, Artistic Director of Theatre-Rites and creator of the highly successful Chotto Desh, Chotto Xenos weaves together stunning choreography by Akram Khan, lighting design by Guy Hoare, costumes by Kimie Nakano, and tender and evocative visuals by Lucy Cash. Mounted on a set by Ingrid Hu, this family show incorporates original music by Domenico Angarano inspired by Vincenzo Lamagna’s score for XENOS.

Chotto Xenos is for anyone over the age of 7. This performance contains haze effects and intermittent loud music.

Image description: Out of darkness, a brown-skinned hand holds out a lit match towards a man in khaki shirt and trousers. The projected image of the hand is twice the height of the man. He crouches, seemingly illuminated by the flame, eyes wide, his hands held out in front of him.
