Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan's DESH was an instant hit with both audiences and critics alike when it was first performed on the main stage in 2011. Now, Akram Khan Company and Theatre-Rites director Sue Buckmaster have adapted this much-loved production 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 sound, Chotto Desh celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the modern world.

Supported by Arts Council England, MOKO Dance is a national dance partnership dedicated to opening the eyes of children and their families to the power of dance. The performances will be accompanied by MOKO Dance workshops and foyer activities to be announced later.
