Silk Road

Djanogly Theatre

Approximately 80 minutes
including interval

£12 restricted view)
Suitable for all

In collaboration with the renowned classical Indian dancer Mavin Khoo, Agudo weaves his Flamenco roots with a unique, contemporary style in this universal and personal story of East meets West.

Performed with an evocative live score, Silk Road is a fascinating exploration of
the rituals along nomadic routes, conjuring images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers who made their way from China to the Iberian Peninsula. It is a celebration of diverse cultures and dances, as strong and delicate as silk itself.

Silk Road is co-commissioned by Sadler’s Well London, ZfinMalta, DanceEast, Dance4, Akademi and supported by Arts Council England, Impulstanz Vienna,
DanceXchange, Teatros del Canal, University of Roehampton, Stratford Circus Arts Centre, The Place, University of East London, Swindon Dance, Lisa Ullmann
Travelling Scholarship Fund.
