To coincide with Akram Khan’s XENOS, 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, Edinburgh International Festival, Théâtre du Châtelet and Théâtre de la Ville in Paris will collaborate on a community project for hundreds of dancers across two cities.
Choreographed by Khan and delivered by dance artists from across Scotland alongside specialist Mass Movement Director Jennifer Irons and dancer Jon Beney, Kadamati draws on themes of identity, migration, connection and hope.
In Edinburgh, Kadamati brings together hundreds of local dancers in a grand gesture of unity outside the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The event will make up part of the programme for the Edinburgh International Culture Summit.
Commissioned by 14–18 NOW: WWI Centenary Art Commissions
