"Rising" by Aakash Odedra
NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts will present Aakash Odedra Company in the New York premiere of Rising, four solo dance works created especially for Aakash Odedra by celebrated choreographers Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and Odedra himself, for one night only, on March 4, 2016 at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Rising was the debut presentation of Aakash Odedra Company in 2011 and has won numerous international awards and continues to tour extensively throughout the world.
Rising is a richly diverse exploration of artistic development and the relationship between performers and choreographer. Odedra creates a fresh, personal language that alternates between lyrical and graceful, brutal and raw, edgy and animalistic. This is the first time Rising has been performed in New York in its entirety.
