About Amin Khayyam Dance Company
Nominated for the National Dance Awards 2022 for Best Independent Dance Company, Amina Khayyam Dance Company (AKDC) makes touring dance theatre work using the South Asian dance Kathak as the core narrative. It works in collaboration with those who are culturally least engaged, economically challenged and societally disenfranchised – with a focus on the marginalised female voice, not just from the mainstream but from within their own community – a place from where its founder and AD, the critically acclaimed dancer and choreographer, Amina Khayyam comes.
The Company adds theatre, live art, and technology, striving to make relevant, engaging work through a process of collaboration, participation, exploration, and opportunities for creative and cultural expression- shaping a process that empowers women creatively as stakeholders.
Since its formation in 2013, it has made 15 pieces of work, performed over 130 performances in 40 venues & digital platforms.
