World-renowned artist Akram Khan unearths the experience of Indian colonial soldiers in the First World War. Over 4 million Indian men were mobilized for the conflict and their stories were never told. Separated from their own histories, homelands, and countrymen, they became xenoi (foreigners). With text from acclaimed Canadian playwright Jordan Tannahill and movement that shifts between classical kathak and contemporary dance, XENOS reveals a story of loss, hope and redemption.
