Akram Khan: Desh
NEW YORK  •  Rose Theatre  •  Ongoing
Akram Khan's Desh is one of the dancer/choreographer’s most outstanding and brilliantly conceived pieces. Less pure dance than previous works, it is an amazing amalgam of theatre, videos, mime, magic, and poetry. But when Khan hurls himself into a dance sequence, his arms and hands moving faster than one’s eye can follow, using contemporary gestures imprinted with vertiginous Kathak inspired spins with his feet stamping out rapid, intricate rhythms, his movements, always full of grace, are of breath-taking beauty.
