For this new solo piece Gnosis, inspired by the Mahabharata, Akram Khan returns to his classical kathak roots, collaborating with Gauri Sharma Tripathi and Pratap Pawar.

Akram Khan is one of the most exciting choreographer/dancers of his generation, internationally acclaimed for his cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary work.

Inspired by the Mahabharata story of Queen Ghandari, who blindfolds herself for life to follow her blind husband, Gnosis explores the notion of inner knowledge and clouded vision, of ‘seeing darkness yet being blind to light’.

Akram Khan: Gnosis plays as part of the Svapnagata Indian Festival.
