dc.description.abstract'Until The Lions' is both a new dance work by choreographer Akram Khan and a collection of poems by writer Karthika Nair. Nair’s collection revisits the HIndu epic the Mahabharata to retell stories through the voices of minor—often female— characters. Khan, who has a long standing creative relationship with the Mahabharata himself, has chosen one such story as ‘a skeleton’ for choreography. This paper draws on observations of Khan’s rehearsals, interviews with collaborators, including Nair, and the performance to explore adaptation as process and product. It considers creative process, collaborative practice and the iterative transformations involved in this adaptation.en
