Akram Khan’s choreography DESH
was a hit with both critics and audiences alike. His collaboration with director Sue Buckmaster to make a children’s adaptation has resulted in Chotto Desh
meaning ‘small homeland’, a unique mix of dance, text and visuals. The stories imagined by Karthika Naïr * and Akram Khan tell the dreams of a young man from Britain to Bangladesh. Dennis Alamanos takes on Khan’s role in this film.
* The grandmother’s fable in Chotto Desh is taken from the book The Honey Hunter
