Akram Khan & Israel Galvsn: TOROBAKA


This show has now closed

Akram Khan is one of the most celebrated and respected dance artists today. In just over a decade he has created an imaginative, highly accessiable and relevant body of work including productions such as DESH, Vertical Road, Gnosis and Zero Degrees. The multi award winning Israel Galvan has been at the forefront of  contemporary flamenco for twenty years. Galvan is known for his innovative choreography and exquisite dancing technique. With this new artistic exchange, Khan and Galvan have created TOROBAKA , bringing together kathak and flamenco to create something altogether distinct, defying classification or genre. 

Performed for the first time in the UK, TOROBAKA takes its name from a Maori-inspired phonetic poem by Tristan Tzara. The Bull (Toro) and the cow (Vaca) are sacred animals in the dancers two traditional and represent the coming together of dance styles. Rather than mimicking one another , the two dancers seek to create something new by better understanding each other's approaches to their craft.
