Akram Khan’s full-length contemporary solo DESH made its world premiere in 2011 to unanimous critical praise and has since enjoyed two triumphant runs at Sadler’s Wells.


His most personal work to date, DESH has been declared “a masterpiece” (The Observer) and won an Olivier Award for best new dance production.


Meaning “homeland” in Bengali, DESH draws on multiple tales of land, nation and resistance, all converging in the body and voice of one man trying to find his balance in an unstable world. Moving between Britain and Bangladesh, Khan weaves threads of memory, experience and myth into a surreal world of surprising connection.


A collaboration of extraordinary proportions, Khan joined forces with visual artist Tim Yip (production designer for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), award-winning lighting designer Michael Hulls, writer and poet Karthika Nair, Olivier Award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook and slam poet PolarBear to create “the most urgent, beautiful and confident work of his career” (The Guardian).
