  • Category: Music & Theatre
  • Dates: Tuesday, 28 May 2013 to Saturday, 01 June 2013

Award-winning dancer/choreographer Akram Khan is bringing a new show to Sadler's Wells from May 28th to June 1st 2013.

Entitled iTMOi (In the Mind of Igor), the full-length ensemble piece is inspired by the works of the prolific Russian composer Igor Stravinsky and pays tribute to his innovative and pioneering works of classical music.

The show explores various aspects of the human condition through the narrative of a woman dancing herself to death, while also shedding light on how Stravinksy's work evoked emotions through patterns.

iTMOi is being staged to mark the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring and features an original score by Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Pook and Ben Frost, with Kimie Nakano providing costume designs.

Luxury London hotel guests planning to attend the show could do so while enjoying a Sizzling Summer Package at The Montague on the Gardens Hotel, which allows guests to enjoy a special two-course barbecue meal on the outdoor Wood Deck.
