This magical, thrilling and poignant dance theatre production for children is adapted from Akram Khan’s award-winning DESH and is directed by Sue Buckmaster of Theatre-Rites. 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 weave of dance, text, visuals and sound, this production is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit in the modern world.
You can also enjoy a programme of MOKO Dance Family activities before and after the show – keep your eyes peeled on this page for more details.
