Akram Khan & Israel Galván
In a circle of deep-hued light, dance artists Akram Khan and Israel Galván square off, flanked by four musicians. Exploding into a volley of sharp movements—angles and arcs, mirrored and refracted—they unfurl an electrifying evening-length work that is equal parts dialogue and duel.
Torobaka is rooted in the vocabularies of kathak, the classical South Asian dance form at the center of Khan’s movement practice, and the contemporary flamenco of Galván, an innovator celebrated for his mastery of the form and exuberant transgression of its boundaries. Negotiating a new, shared language— marked by percussive footwork, expressive musicality, and powerful, articulate gesture—these two figures come together, confronting and mirroring one another in a muscular, sinuous exchange.
Music arranged and performed by David Azurza, Bobote, Christine Leboutte, B C Manjunath

This event has been canceled. Due to a recent knee injury while performing in Paris, Israel Galván has been advised by his doctor to withdraw his participation in the Torobaka tour while he undergoes complete rest and rehabilitation.
