Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan’s DESH was an instant hit with audiences and critics alike when it was first performed on the main stage in 2011. Four years later, Akram Khan Company and Theatre-Rites’ director Sue Buckmaster, adapted the solo into Khan’s much-loved production, Chotto Desh, which returns to the Lilian Baylis Studio for children aged seven and above, 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 families to enjoy together.
