Until the Lions
- Filmed Performance
Initiated by the 360° Network – a network of round artistic venues across the world – Until the Lions was especially created for the distinctive in-the-round space at the Roundhouse by multi award-winning choreographer and dancer Akram Khan. Using a powerful blend of kathak movement and contemporary dance, Khan tells the story of Amba, one of the great, unsung heroines of the Mahabharata. Adapted from Karthika Naïr’s book Until the Lions: Echoes from the Mahabharata, the piece is a poetic retelling of the Sanskrit epic exploring notions of gender and time in a battle for justice and liberty.
