Rising is a unique dance event from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 September at the Burton Taylor Studio. Performed by Aakash Odedra, Rising uses dance, video and music to explore different processes and aesthetics that create a new, personal language. Aakash performs solo pieces choreographed by some of the foremost contemporary choreographers working today, including Akram Khan who recently choreographed a section of Danny Boyle’s Isles of Wonder London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, in which he also performed. Aakash will also perform work choreographed by Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and a piece of his own. Rising uses Aakash’s background in Kathak and Bharatanatyam creating a new flavour of contemporary dance.
