Akram Khan Company Repertoire workshop

Beginning with a warm-up developed through Akram’s movement vocabulary, participants will be able to explore their own creativity through exercises and tasks focusing on rhythm, speed, cycles and silence. The workshop will develop into learning choreographic phrases from two highly acclaimed productions from Akram Khan Company Repertoire, Kaash and iTMOi (in the mind of igor).
