A young man finds curious things in an old box. He has known little about his grandfather's experiences during World War One, and now he starts to form a new view of the past, his own identity and the ceaseless struggles of humanity.
Says choreographer and dancer Akram Khan of the multi-award-winning solo show: XENOS "is a reflection of how I feel about our world today. It is about our loss of humanity and how, through past and present wars, we are yet again confronted by the burning question of what it is to be human. How can humans have such ability to create extraordinary and beautiful things from our imagination, and yet have an immense ability to create and commit violence and horrors beyond our imagination?”
The Akram Khan Company and director Sue Buckmaster undertook to recreate the world of XENOS in a manner that speaks to an audience of children.

The performance is not recommended for audiences under the age of 7.

This performance of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Müpa Budapest.

Presented by: Müpa Budapest
