Rising is the award-winning debut performance that launched the career of international dancer and choreographer Aakash Odedra.
This mesmerising evening features four distinct solos by acclaimed artists Akram Khan,
Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Russell Maliphant, and Aakash himself.
Created in 2011, this revival is a rare opportunity to experience an astonishing evening of dance. Each work draws on Aakash’s traditional background in kathak and bharatanatyam to create a distinct flavour of contemporary dance. Rising delivers an unprecedented pairing of world-renowned contemporary choreographers and one of the most talented British South Asian dancers of his generation.
We are so excited to be welcoming our audiences back to Oxford Playhouse. We want to reassure you that we have implemented all the necessary measures to ensure we are a COVID-19 secure venue and operate within the government guidelines.
The safety of our audiences, artists and staff remains paramount as we reopen for live events. For this reason, we have elected to put all new shows on sale with a smaller than usual capacity, as a precautionary measure to enable us to distance our audience members safely. If restrictions are lifted and audience demands, we will increase capacity for popular events. Oxford Playhouse will continue to adhere to government advice regarding live performances in theatres and other entertainment venues and offer full refunds if bookers test positive for Covid-19. If you have any concerns or questions, our Box Office team will be happy to talk to you.
