Until Lion is Akram Khan’s much-hyped new production which is running from the 9 - 24 of January. The London-born choreographer is known for collaborating with the likes of Anish Kapoor, Hanif Kureishi and Antony Gormley, but here he returns to the Mahabharata - the epic Sanskrit poem that first shot him to fame as a dancer. Khan’s updated rendition will combine traditional Indian “kathak” movement with contemporary dance. 

Annie Leibovitz revisits WOMEN, the famous photo series made with Susan Sontag in 1999, for a tour that will showcase her portraits in ten cities across the world.

It launches in London, at the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station. (January 16 – February 7)
