An emerging new star in British dance, Rising is an evening of stunning solo performance by Aakash Odedra. Individual works have been specially choreographed for him by internationally renowned artists Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and Akram Khan, and the evening opens with a classical Kathak variation which Aakash has choreographed himself. Each piece ingeniously uses Aakash’s background in Kathak and Bharatanatyam to create a new flavour of contemporary dance, complemented with beautiful lighting by Michael Hulls and Willy Cessa. The project has been commissioned by DanceXchange, Sampad, Eastman, The Hat Factory, Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Dance, South East Dance, New Art Exchange, The Place, Curve Theatre, Leicester and funded by Arts Council England and Akademi. Presented in partnership with New Dance4
