Akram Khan’s DESH was an instant hit when it was first presented in 2011. Now, Akram Khan Company and Theatre-Rites director Sue Buckmaster have adapted this much-loved production for children and their families.
Chotto Desh, meaning ‘small homeland’, draws on Khan’s unique quality of cross-cultural storytelling, creating a compelling tale of a young man’s dreams and memories from Britain to Bangladesh. Using a mix of dance, text, visuals and sound, Chotto Desh celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the modern world and promises to be a magical, thrilling and poignant dance theatre experience for families to enjoy together.
Presented in association with MOKO Dance, an Arts Council England supported dance partnership dedicated to opening the eyes of children and their families to the power of dance
