Akram Khan's Vertical Road: The Dark and the Light

"The eight dancers in Akram Khan’s Vertical Road seem to react reflexively to the powerful beat underlying Nitin Sawhney’s textured, atmospheric score. It’s not immediately clear why their movements are so engaging, but soon enough, the reason becomes evident—the pulsations echo the tempo of our beating hearts."

From an article for Playbill on Akram Khan's Vertical Road in Lincoln Center's White Light Festival.
