Watching a performance of choreographer Akram Khan’s ‘iTMOi (in the mind of igor) was an amazing all-embracing experience of the senses. Layers and layers of symbolism, nuanced multiple meanings, echoes of ancient times but speaking in the language of today. Darkness and light; stillness and movement; noise and silence; cacophony and harmony. And in the centre, like a still point, a dancer in white, her hooped dress a semi-circle, a kind of receptacle.
The audience was totally still for the entire performance and I am sure like me will allow echoes of what we experienced to resonate and enrich for some time to come.
