Chotto Desh celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the modern world.
Meaning ‘small homeland’, Chotto Desh draws on Khan’s unique quality of cross-cultural storytelling.
Blending Kathak and contemporary dance with an exquisite mix of spoken text, dreamlike animation, visuals and specially composed music, Chotto Desh is an enchanting and poignant dance-theatre experience that appeals to adults and children alike.
Akram Khan Company is delighted to be bringing back its much-loved production of Chotto Desh.
Adapted by Theatre-Rites’ director, Sue Buckmaster, in 2015 from Akram Khan’s Olivier Award-winning solo and critically acclaimed DESH, this heartwarming story follows a young man trying to find his place in the world.
Now, it returns to capture the attention and imagination of a new generation of younger audiences in 2023.

Originally co-commissioned by MOKO Dance, Akram Khan Company, Sadler’s Wells London, DanceEast, Théâtre de la Ville Paris, Mercat de les Flors Barcelona, Biennale de la danse de Lyon 2016 and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.
