2nd November 2018
Akram Khan Company, and Theatre-Rites director Sue Buckmaster have adapted Khan's much-loved production of DESH for children aged 7+ 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 magical mix of dance, text, visuals and a score by Jocelyn Pook, 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.
