Oxford Playhouse in association with Oxford Festival of the Arts is delighted to present Akram Khan Company and its much-loved family friendly production of Chotto Desh.

Adapted by Theatre-Rites’ director, Sue Buckmaster, from Akram Khan’s Olivier Award-winning solo and critically acclaimed DESH, this heart-warming story follows a young man trying to find his place in the world. Now returning to capture the imagination of a new generation of young audiences.

Chotto Desh, meaning ‘small homeland’, draws on Khan’s unique quality of cross-cultural storytelling, creating a compelling tale of a boy’s dreams and memories from Britain to Bangladesh that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the modern world. Blending Kathak and contemporary dance with an exquisite mix of spoken text, dreamlike animation, visuals and specially composed music, Chotto Desh is an enchanting and poignant dance-theatre experience for all the family to enjoy together.
