Images of the last ever performances of Akram Khan’s universally acclaimed ‘Until the Lions’ , The Roundhouse, January 2019.

Dancers in these images: Akram Khan and Ching-Ying Chien

‘Using a powerful blend of 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.’

Director, Choreographer and Dancer: Akram Khan,

Visual artist: Tim Yip,

Lighting designer: Michael Hulls,
