DESH was originally written for Akram Khan Company’s
full-length solo work, the most personal work to date
from the celebrated choreographer and performer.
DESH, meaning ‘homeland’ in Bengali, draws multiple
tales of land, nation, resistance and convergence
into the body and voice of one man trying to find
his balance in an unstable world. The world premiere
was at Curve Theatre, Leicester, in September 2011,
and the London premiere in Sadler’s Wells Theatre, in
October 2011.
With thanks to Akram Khan Company’s creative team, including:
Akram Khan (direction, choreography, performance),
Farooq Chaudhry (producer), Tim Yip (visual director),
Michael Hulls (lighting design), Karthika Nair (writer), Ruth Little
(dramaturge). Thanks also to Irene Lu, JiaXuan Hon, Mashitah Omar,
Eesha Desai, Sreya Andrisha Gazi, Mosharaf Khan, Lore Lixenberg
and Eeshita Azad. DESH was sponsored by COLAS and supported by
Arts Council England and the Bangladesh High Commission, London.
