Stirring classical and contemporary, Akram Khan’s latest production, Outwitting the Devil, is an epic dance piece about ritual and remembering in the midst of our ever-changing planet.
Like Kaash, based on the pantheon of Hindu gods, Outwitting the Devil similarly draws on ancient narrative, in this case the Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh – one of the world’s oldest great works of literature.
In Outwitting the Devil, the king Gilgamesh is punished by the gods for destroying a legendary cedar forest and killing its guardian; his friend Enkidu, a wild man he has tamed, is taken from him. Confronted with the truth and sorrow of human mortality, Gilgamesh passes into history, to become a fragment among the broken remnants of human culture and memory.
