56 min
Available from 12/01/2018 to 15/01/2018
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
