Akram Khan Company: DESH Tickets
4.4 5 reviews★★★★★ "His best show yet: poignant, thrilling, magical, moving and utterly transfixing" - The Daily Telegraph
Sadler's Wells, London
Inspired by his parents’ birthplace, DESH (Bengali for ‘homeland’) weaves together stories that span both Britain and Bangladesh to create a surreal world of myth and memory.
To create this very personal solo piece, Khan brought together a team of collaborators of extraordinary proportions, joining forces with Oscar-winning visual artist Tim Yip, Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and award-winning lighting designer Michael Hulls, Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook, writer and poet Karthika Naïr, and slam poet PolarBear.
