Founded 20 years ago in London by the dancer and choreographer Akram Khan (born 1974) and the producer Farooq Chaudhry, Akram Khan Company has become one of the most dynamic troupes on the international contemporary dance scene. Trained in Kathak, Khan has created an innovative choreographic language that fuses the vocabulary of traditional Indian dance with contemporary dance. His performances also feature collaborators from a vast array of disciplines: he has collaborated with the dancer Sylvie Guillem, the actress Juliette Binoche, the artists Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor, the choreographer and dancer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Israel Galvan and Kylie Minogue, among others.

This beautifully illustrated book is the first monograph on Khan, appraising two decades of his ceaseless production and the 26 pieces created by Akram Khan Company since its foundation.
