Chotto Desh,
29.–30. September 2018

Spilles: Sat 29. Sep 2018 Sun 30. Sep

Fantastic and magical dance for the whole family.

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+/8+ and their families.
Chotto Desh, meaning ‘small homeland’, draws on Khan’s unique quality of crosscultural 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.

Suitable for children from 8 – 16 and their family.

- An absolute triumph

- magical and heart warming
