Ching-Ying Chien | Joy Alpuerto Ritter



British star choreographer Akram Khan will be visiting Kampnagel from 25 to 28 January with his piece Untilthe Lions. Prior to the shows, dancers Ching-Ying Chien and Joy Alpuerto Ritter will provide some insights into the work of the Akram Khan Company in a master class: the warm-up addresses integral aspects of Khan’s work, then expands into exercises and tasks that deal with rhythm, speed and stillness, and finally ending with select movement phrases from Until the Lions.
