Britain's best-known choreographer Akram Khan has drawn on his roots for the final solo dance performance of his career, with a show that pays tribute to Indian soldiers who fought in World War I. "Xenos" ("stranger" in Greek) opens with two musicians onstage, interpreting some Indian music in a festive atmosphere. Dressed for a performance, a dancer arrives, stumbling. In place of the elegant grace of that dance, Khan's movements are disrupted.Almost 1.2 million people from Britain's Indian empire took part in the conflict.In 2012 Khan snapped his Achilles tendon and feared his dance career was over.This final solo performance is not the end of Khan, who says he is working on several projects, not all of them related to dance theater.
