Family Series: Memories of the Future
Akram Khan Company
The 2021-22 Family Series opens with Akram Khan Company (AKC) in Memories of the Future, an open house event in which the lobbies of the Harris Theater will become an interactive, intergenerational gathering place and audiences will become the creators and storytellers. Drawing on the themes of AKC’s work, the event will allow participants of all ages to share their stories through movement, poetry, artmaking, and oral storytelling, fostering connection with AKC company members, local artists, and fellow audiences. Memories of the Future is a playful and creative invitation to explore the memories of our elders and to inspire children’s stories of tomorrow.
What is the Family Series?
Family Series performances offer high-quality, engaging programming designed to cultivate the next generation of arts lovers. These hour-long performances are designed for children ages 4 and older and fun for the entire family, with opportunities to meet and interact with artists following each performance. And as always, audiences are encouraged to laugh, clap, and experience the theater in their own way — no shushing allowed!
