Akram Khan Company


Thu 13 November - Fri 14 November

This event has passed.

One man tries to find his balance in an unstable world in this Olivier award-winning performance by celebrated choreographer and performer Akram Khan.

His most personal work to date, DESH  - meaning ‘homeland’ in Bengali - sees Khan team up with Oscar-winning visual artist Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).Moving between Britain and Bangladesh, Khan weaves threads of memory, experience and myth into a surreal world of surprising connection.

At once intimate and epic, Desh celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the rhythms of labour, in dream and story, and in transformation and survival.

Akram Khan is one of the most exciting choreographers working in the UK today – using his early training in classic Indian Kathak and combining it with contemporary dance, he creates original, daring and inspiring performances. The company’s international reputation has grown culminating in Khan being invited to create and perform within the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
