Red alert, to anyone anywhere near Northern California on Oct. 24: Akram Khan is presenting his latest piece,“iTMOi” (“In the Mind of Igor”), which sounds amazing, at the UC Davis campus theatre next week.

Read here about the evolution of (& tenacity required for) this surprising tour stop by this prestigious choreographer. “iTMOi” (“In the Mind of Igor”) sounds to be a true re-imagining of Stravinsky’s process as opposed to a simple re-animation of the radical Stravinsky score. The all-original music features Indian, folk and industrial influences with just a few strains of Stravinsky’s own themes.
