Jazzy Rhythms and Limber Limbs: The Pursuit of Now at Sadler's Wells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Pursuit of Now is part of the Buta Festival of Azerbaijani Arts, held at Sadler's Wells Theatre which celebrates the country and its people. The programme promised that British contemporary dancer Akram Khan would improvise with the Azeri jazz pianist Shahin Novrasli. This London stage has seen numerous succesful collaborations, yet this one definitely brings together creative energies. The brainchild of the festival, Nasib Piriyev, is committed to celebrating the Azerbaijani culture which, as he claims, can be understood through its music and arts.
