Book Tickets

Akram Khan brings his theatrical Until the Lions, a piece originally created for The Roundhouse in 2016, to Sadler’s Wells for the first time. Khan, in his last ever performance in this epic work, will be joined on stage by an international cast of two dancers and four musicians.

Using a powerful blend of classical Indian 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. 

Until the Lions sees Khan reunite with some of his regular artistic collaborators, including visual artist Tim Yip, lighting designer Michael Hulls, writer Karthika Naïr and dramaturg Ruth Little.
