Drawing inspiration from Sufi tradition and Persian poet-philosopher Rumi, Vertical Road is a riveting meditation on humanity’s journey between the earthly and the spiritual by the internationally acclaimed Akram Khan Company. A profound, visceral exploration of man’s nature, rituals and the consequences of his actions, Vertical Road features a pulsating score by longtime Khan collaborator Nitin Sawhney. One of Britain’s most innovative and influential choreographers, Olivier Award-winning Akram Khan, infuses his modern works with classical Kathak dance idiom.
