Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan’s fascinating cross-cultural collaboration Bahok, 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.
