To coincide with Akram Khan’s XENOS, 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, Edinburgh International Festival and Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris will collaborate on a community project for hundreds of dancers across two cities.
Choreographed by Khan, Kadamati draws on themes of identity, migration, connection and hope and will mark the end of the First World War. 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
