4-11 May
Factory International, Manchester

Experience an electrifying encounter of cultures as China and India take centre stage in this awe-inspiring theatrical event from our Chair of trustees and visionary artist, Keith Khan, choreographed by Xiexin Dance Theatre and Terence Lewis Contemporary Dance Company.

Prepare for a night of breathtaking dance, thought-provoking dialogue and stunning visual effects as The Accountants sifts through the clutter of data and stereotypes to reveal profound human connections and celebrate the vibrant tapestry of global culture.

Choreographed by the masterful XIE Xin of Shanghai and Bollywood’s own Terence Lewis/Mahrukh Dumasia, this dance extravaganza challenges our notions of identity and cultural dominance.

Main characters Kash and Liam – voiced by the talented Josh Hart and actor and author Shobna Gulati – are of British-Chinese and British-Indian heritage. Delivered via texts and voice notes, their banter and soul-searching dialogues playfully debate which cultural superpower reigns supreme – from food to iconic landmarks and spiritual beliefs.

This battle is enriched by a high-tech visual and acoustic feast crafted by the ARIA-nominated sound artist Somatic and the award-winning design studio idontloveyouanymore providing stunning immersive visuals, plus lighting design from the award-winning Simon Corder and dramaturgy by Jude Christian.

Brought to you by Keith Khan, whose grand artistic creations have adorned events from the Notting Hill Carnival to the London 2012 Olympic Games, The Accountants invites you on a global journey right from your seat.
