Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche and internationally acclaimed contemporary dancer and choreographer Akram Khan have joined forces to create a major new work of dance theatre. In-I had its world premiere at the National Theatre in London on 18 September 2008 followed by touring internationally. Turner prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor has designed the set for this exciting production and award-winning composer Philip Sheppard has created the original score.

In-I takes both artists in new directions: Juliette Binoche is dancing having never danced on stage before and choreographer and dancer Akram Khan is acting and signing. Throughout their careers, Juliette Binoche and Akram Khan have both sought out surprising and challenging collaborations. Akram Khan has always taken an inter-disciplinary approach to dance and his collaborations range from the French prima ballerina Sylvie Guillem to pop star Kylie Minogue to writers, artists and musicians including Hanif Kureishi, Antony Gormley and Nitin Sawhney.
