Book Akram Khan Company: DESH Tickets at the Sadlers Wells, London

About Akram Khan Company: DESH

Akram Khan Company: DESH

DESH (homeland) is a new full length solo from celebrated choreographer and performer, Akram Khan, inspired by his homeland of Bangladesh. After critically acclaimed collaborations with artists including Sylvie Guillem, Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley, DESH is set to be one of Khan’s most personal works, as he seeks to reconnect with his cultural roots.

Reflecting on life in Bangladesh, Khan will portray several characters familiar in daily Bangladeshi culture through his own body and voice. For this solo performance, he has teamed up with Oscar-winning Chinese visual artist Tim Yip (production designer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), fellow Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and lighting designer Michael Hulls, Indian writer and poet Karthika Nair and Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook.


"His art speaks tremendously of tremendous things" - FINANCIAL TIMES

DESH will explore the idea of transformation - of body, land, identity and memory, while examining the contradictions of Khan’s own British-Asian identity. In Khan’s own words: “I am searching for a story that addresses both the tragedy and comedy of life in Bangladesh.”
