Chotto Desh

Akram Khan Company

Choreographer Akram Khan’s DESH was an instant hit with audiences and critics alike when it was first presented in 2011. Now, Akram Khan Company and director Sue Buckmaster of Theatre-Rites have adapted Khan’s much-loved production specifically 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 unique 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 audiences of all ages to enjoy together. 

Join us for a live interactive event with dancer Nicolas Ricchini and director Sue Buckmaster!
