About The Event

As part of the ninth edition of the Parks New Festival, the British Council and Prakriti Foundation are presenting Torobaka, a dance duet by Akram Khan (Kathak-contemporary, UK) and Israel Galván (Flamenco-contemporary, Spain). The show brings together two masters from the world of contemporary dance whose production defies any genre.

 

The dancers grapple with the idea ofToro-vaca, a Maori-inspired poem by Tristan Tzara. Toro (the bull) and vaca (the cow) are both sacred animals in their own respective cultures and they come together but united, in a symbolic way.

 

Alongside four immensely talented musicians in the production, the performers draw deeply from their individual roots in Indian kathak and Spanish flamenco, and share the essence of movement beyond the dance form, in the pulse and rhythm of a common language.

 

Entry restricted to those who are aged over 16 years.

 

Seats are on First-cum-first served basis

 

Duration: The show will be for 70 minutes without any interval.
