AAKASH ODEDRA COMPANY: “RISING"
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 | 8:00pm
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
Lawrence Family JCC
One of the most exciting young contemporary dancers and choreographer in the U.K., the “simply breathtaking” (Globe and Mail), Aakash Odedra takes the stage in the captivating solo “Rising” with choreography from acclaimed international artists Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, and Odedra himself. In “Rising,” Odedra draws on his background in the classical Indian dance disciplines of Kathak and Bharatanatyam while remaining intrinsically contemporary in style and concept. Exploring different processes and aesthetics in the pieces created for “Rising,” Odedra highlights different aspects of himself to create a new personal language: lyrical and graceful, brutal and raw, edgy and animalistic.
“ ‘Rising’ reveals an exceptionally agile dancer who, it appears, has no trouble slipping between styles, effortlessly multilingual.’-The New York Times
