Marking his final performances as a dancer in a full-length piece, Akram Khan takes to the stage alongside five world-class
musicians. Khan revisits the myth of Prometheus in the context of the First World War, conjuring the shell-shocked dream of a colonial soldier. XENOS takes place where humanity stands in wonder and disarray, on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology.
