As in many myths, the female characters are often the unsung heroes, the figures of strength and imagination and endurance. It is their unsung stories in particular that still haunt me today.
Akram Khan
This is a little firecracker of a show, one that really stays with you and grows in the memory. It is based on an African proverb: “Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.
The Telegraph
By confining his material to metaphor and abstraction, and by making the work lean, thrilling and beautiful, Khan gives us theatre that satisfies our deep responsiveness to the mythic, while leaving no cloying aftertaste of sentimentality or kitsch. It’s a difficult finesse to carry off.
