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 Theater-Rites director Sue Buckmaster have adapted this much-loved production for children aged 7 years+ 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.
