UK dancer to relive Gandhari's story Even as the memories of the spectacle are still fresh, Akram Khan and his troupe are touring across six cities in India with his latest project, Gnosis, a classical-contemporary fusion piece based on the relationship between Duryodhana and Gandhari. Gnosis will flag off 'Impulse', the three-month-long dance festival being organised by the British Council in India. Akram Khan has his mother to thank for introducing him to Bengali folk dance when he was seven. Things got better when he joined the cast of Peter Brook's Shakespeare Company production, Mahabharata, in 1985. 'I learnt about the Mahabharata then,' says the Wimbledon-born Kathak dancer who launched the Akram Khan Company in 2000. 'Gnosis will highlight the emotional battles Gandhari had to face,' says Khan about the production that was premiered at the Sadler's Wells Theatre in London in 2009.
