Unforgettable solo recreated for young audiences: magical and soothing.

With "Chotto Desh", young audience version of previous solo "Desh" (Native Land), Akram Khan turns the pages of an initiatory tale full of suspense and powerful images. Between return to the country of origin, Bangladesh - where his parents were born and lived before migrating to London in 1971 - and self-construction, this deep, suggestive and universal piece, performed by a dancer of the company, is perfectly enhanced by sophisticated and wonderful Tim Dip's design.
