If you think all of the best Brisbane Festival performances have been and gone, think again. Dance piece Rising is a beautiful production and not be missed. Comprising of four different chapters, each featuring the same incredible dancer, Rising will inspire and amaze.
The immensely talented UK dancer, Aakash Odedra, is the star of this performance and also a rising star in the world of dance. The choreographers behind these extraordinary dances are Odedra himself, Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. While each segment differs greatly, a running theme is the inclusion of Odera's area of expertise – Bharatanatym and Kathak traditional Indian dance styles. The four instalments are Shadow of Man (Khan), Cut (Maliphant), Constellation (Cherkaoui) and Nritta (Odedra).
