Rising

1st Nov 2012 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Aakash Odedra performs Rising, a series of solos choreographed by Russell Maliphant, Sidi Lbarbi Cherkaoui, and Akram Khan in the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £10.00 / £8.00 concessions

Rising is a new evening of work performed by Aakash Odedra, exploring different processes and aesthetics to create a new personal language. 

Aakash performs solos choreographed by Russell Maliphant; Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Akram Khan with lighting by Michael Hulls. All use Aakash’s background in Kathak and Bharata Natyam to create a new flavour of contemporary dance.

Aakash also presents a contemporary Kathak solo choreographed by himself. 

The evening will feature video interludes exploring sequential changes in music cycles which have been developed, as a collaboration between John Marc Gowans and Aakash Odedra.

 ‘It‘s the dance equivalent of a red-carpet event…establishes Odedra as a dancer to follow.’  – Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
