Bahok - An exploration of individual cultural stories that reveal a universal truth
Named after a Bengali word meaning ‘carrier’, bahok explores the ways in which the body carries national identity and a sense of belonging. The eight dancers from diverse cultures, traditions and dance backgrounds act out their attempts to communicate through dramatic dance and spoken vocabulary as they wait out their airport limbo. Their destination is unknown.
Khan joins forces with long-time musical collaborator Nitin Sawhney, renowned for his multi award-winning compositions, who has created an original score for bahok.
Originally a collaboration between the Akram Khan Company and the National Ballet of China, bahok is dance and storytelling inspired by the exploration of cultural identity in a globalised world.
