NNF17: Akram Khan Company – Chotto Desh

From Thursday 18th May 2017 19:30 to 20:30

Part of the Norfolk & Norwich festival.

Fusing dance, storytelling, interactive animation and specially composed music, Chotto Desh is a bewitching, thrilling and poignant tale of a young man’s dreams and memories from Britain to Bangladesh.

Chotto Desh, Bengali for ‘small homeland’, draws on Khan’s unique quality of cross-cultural storytelling weaving together a playful story of a boy who dreams of becoming a dancer, and of a mythical child who angers the forest gods by collecting their forbidden honey.

Akram Khan is one of the UK’s most celebrated and influential artists, admired for his unique style of intimate yet epic storytelling.

Chotto Desh is reworked from his Olivier Award-winning autobiographical show DESH and adapted by director Sue Buckmaster of Theatre-Rites to create a show that can be enjoyed by everyone aged 7+.
