Akram Khan Company - Desh
Akram Khan’s latest work made its world premiere in 201. His most personal work to date, DESH is a full length contemporary solo that won an Olivier Award for best new dance production.
Meaning “homeland” in Bengali, DESH draws on multiple tales of land, nation and resistance, all converging in the body and voice of one man trying to find his balance in an unstable world. Moving between Britain and Bangladesh, Khan weaves threads of memory, experience and myth into a surreal world of surprising connection.
Khan joined forces with visual artist Tim Yip, award-winning lighting designer Michael Hulls, writer and poet Karthika Nair, Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook and slam poet PolarBear.
