SCHOOLS PERFORMANCE: CHOTTO DESH | AKRAM KHAN COMPANY

Fri 26 Apr
From £7 per student
Suitable for 7+...

★★★★★ “An absolute triumph.” – The Scotsman

DanceEast is delighted to be bringing back Akram Khan’s much-loved family friendly production of Chotto Desh after it premiered at the DanceHouse in 2015. Returning to capture the attention and imagination of a new generation of younger audiences, this adaptation of Akram Khan’s award-winning solo and critically acclaimed piece DESH, is a heart-warming story that follows a young man trying to find his place in the world.

Kathak and contemporary dance are mixed with spoken text, dreamlike animation, visuals, and specially composed music, to create an enchanting and poignant dance-theatre experience for children and their families to enjoy together.

Curriculum themes include:

  • British values
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development
  • Exploring identity and a sense of belonging
  • Celebrating diversity and pride of self and culture
  • Migration and movement of people
  • Exploration of the feeling of home

Akram Khan Company have been working with schools in Tower Hamlets. Find out more here.
